Circuit: Jerez de la Frontera 4.423 kms

Driver: Sebastian Vettel
Chassis: STR3-02
Best time: 1:19.844
94 laps
Pos.1st

A four day long test, the last before the summer F1 testing ban, got underway this morning at Jerez de la Frontera. While the Hockenheim weekend had been cooler than expected, Spain in July lived up to its hot reputation with a track temperature high of 51 degrees Celsius recorded during the afternoon. Seb set his best time, the fastest time of the day, in the cooler morning, on his way to getting through his entire programme with no technical problems. Aero testing followed by mechanical work aimed at improving set-up and traction were the first items on the agenda. Brake materials were also evaluated and the day ended with more aero testing.

German Seb continues driving tomorrow, when he will run the entire day on 2009 specification slick tyres.
