Jerez de la Frontera 4.423 kms

Sebastien Buemi
Chassis: STR3-04
Best time: 1:18.742

Scuderia Toro Rosso continued its preparation for the 2009 season, in Southern Spain, where it is running two cars and three drivers over the three day session.

The day was neatly divided in two by the weather, which was dry at first, before rain affected the afternoon running. Both cars went out on track in the same configuration as at the previous Barcelona test, with downforce levels replicating those expected from the new aero rules for next year.

Tyres were also the same Bridgestone "soft" slicks. Both Sebastiens concentrated on set-up work, with Buemi additionally assessing various aero options. The rain saw a switch to wet weather tyres, with the two drivers running a comparison between this year's rain tyre and a development tyre for the 2010 season.

Buemi will be driving for the remaining two days, with Bourdais running again tomorrow morning, before handing over to Takuma Sato for the final day and a half.
