If anyone was in any doubt as to why there are two races in Spain on the 2008 calendar, they only had to turn up at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit today, where it seemed that most of the locals must have rung their bosses and claimed to be sick.

The grandstands were completely packed out and it took our logistics man two and a half hours to fight his way through 12 kilometres of traffic to get to the airport.

Meanwhile back on the track, Vettel, running the car with 2008 electronics evaluated some rear suspension components, while Bourdais worked on the mechanical set-up of his car, as well as looking at damper performance. Both our Sebs also tried new brake material and looked at improving driveability without the use of traction control.

Seb and Seb continue testing tomorrow.

Best time: 1:20.339
56 laps

Sebastien Bourdais
