Circuit: Circuito de Jerez 4.428 kms
Driver: Jaime Alguersuari
Chassis: STR5 - 02
Best time: 1:19.919, 76 laps
As predicted, rain was the main factor today, although the team made the most of the first dry hour this morning to do a base line run, with Jaime Alguersuari taking over from Sebastien Buemi in the cockpit. It was during this period that Jaime set his best time of the day.
From then on, it was a case of the Catalan driver getting his first taste of this year's rain tyres, starting on Intermediates, in the light drizzle that began to fall, before switching to the Extremes when the rain intensified. Later, conditions were so bad that testing was abandoned with around 45 minutes of the session remaining. Jaime completed long runs on both types of rain tyre: the car ran reliably and the driver made no mistakes in the tricky conditions.
Jaime Alguersuari continues driving tomorrow, for the final day of this test, when rain is again on the radar.
