Track length: 5.412km
Panasonic Toyota Racing today continued its strong progress at the second week of testing at the Bahrain International Circuit. A stronger wind at Sakhir meant that conditions were cooler than they have been in previous days but there was still a full day's running for the three teams in action. Timo Glock took over in the hot seat for Toyota, continuing the programme of set-up in the TF109. He maintained the team's solid run, putting in well over 100 laps. Timo will return to the cockpit tomorrow for the last day of the test.

"That was another good day for us. We didn't have any major problems and we again made it through a lot of work. We concentrated on set-up and went through our programme smoothly. It has been a bit tricky to drive today because there was a lot of wind, which was also blowing from a different direction to yesterday when Jarno was driving. But in the end I'm happy that we did so much work and it's positive that we found some useful directions to work with."
Pascal Vasselon, Senior General Manager Chassis
"Again, we are delighted with how this test is going. Today was another very long day of testing. We are starting to run out of hours of sleep - so the car seems to be lasting better than our bodies! Today Timo completed another full set of runs. We worked on all parts of the car, including set-up, suspension, aero and tyres. The car is quick and consistent so this was another interesting day."
