PENULTIMATE TEST

Panasonic Toyota Racing had another busy day on the track as its last week of testing for 2009 continues at Barcelona. On a cool and cloudy day at the Catalan circuit, Timo Glock took over at the wheel of the TF109. He ran through a programme of aerodynamic evaluations, suspension and set-up, clocking up 132 laps despite some interruptions for red flags. Timo will return to the cockpit tomorrow for Toyota's last day of winter testing for 2009.

Timo Glock - Chassis TF109-04
Position: 4th of 10
Best lap time: 1min 20.410s (+1.283s)
Total laps: 132

"This morning started well and we made it through a lot of set-up and comparisons in the course of the day. We found some different directions and overall it was a productive session. Late on we had a slightly longer break so we couldn't quite finish our plan. But we should have enough data to investigate and make some positive steps for tomorrow."

Dieter Gass, Chief Engineer Race and Test

"Today was a bit more difficult for us. We had a full programme of work on aero and set-up but in the end we had a few red flags and minor problems which slightly interrupted our programme. Still, we got through a lot of laps and it was another busy day for Timo. Tomorrow is our last day of winter testing so we will try to make the most of it. Then we can look forward to Melbourne where we hope to keep up our pre-season testing form."
