HOME RUN

With Silverstone representing the halfway point in the 2008 World Championship, Panasonic Toyota Racing now prepares for one of its home events, the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim on 20 July. On the first of a three--day test at the track, third driver Kamui Kobayashi was behind the wheel of the TF108 and enjoyed gaining more experience despite suffering some rain interruptions in the morning. Timo Glock is scheduled to take over driving duties tomorrow, in preparation for his home Grand Prix, with Jarno Trulli concluding the test on Thursday.

Kamui Kobayashi -- Chassis TF108--04
Best Lap Time: 1min 16.570s
Position: 6th
Total laps: 65

"It is nice to drive the Formula 1 car at a circuit I know reasonably well. I had a fourth place here in the F3 Euroseries and the test will also be good preparation for my GP2 race next week. We had quite a varied programme today and I did some brake comparisons as well as concentrating on collecting tyre and set--up data."

Gerd Pfeiffer -- Test Team Manager

"The main aim of the day was data collection. We tried different suspension set--ups and carried out some brake comparisons. We also conducted some engine work and got positive results with everything we did -- despite the weather."
