LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL

Panasonic Toyota Racing today began its final test of preparation for the 2009 season at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya. After early showers the track started off partly wet but there was no further rain and in spite of cool temperatures the tarmac soon dried out. Jarno Trulli was at the helm of the TF109, working on a programme that included aerodynamics, brakes and set-up. He had a successful day, putting in over 100 laps. Jarno will return to action tomorrow as the test continues.

Jarno Trulli - Chassis TF109-04
Position: 3rd of 10
Best lap time: 1min 20.937s (+0.599s)
Total laps: 121

"This morning started off with drizzly conditions but the rain quickly tailed off, giving us the chance to have a good day's work. The afternoon was windier but the track surface was fine. The car felt well balanced from the start and we worked on several new things on the aero side which gave us positive results. We were competitive throughout the day and we collected a lot of data so this was a useful start to the test."

Dieter Gass, Chief Engineer Race and Test

"Today we carried out a lot of different tests, mainly on new aerodynamic components but also on brakes and suspension. So it was a full programme and there were no technical problems. Conditions were good and we made it through everything we had planned. We did a lot of laps so it was a positive start to our last week of preparation for Melbourne."
