The numbers increased to nine drivers on track at Jerez on Wednesday and for the third day of the week it was a Williams at the top of the times. Mark Webber set a best of 1:16.437 while working on tyres. Antonio Pizzonia was behind the wheel of the second Williams but experienced several technical problems that left him seventh fastest.

McLaren took to the test track for the first time in 2005 and posted second and third quickest with Kimi Raikkonen and test driver Alex Wurz respectively. The pair racked up 190 laps between them and tomorrow Juan Pablo Montoya will be testing alongside Raikkonen for the first time as teammates.

Franck Montagny continued for Renault and clocked the fourth fastest time of the day. The team's test driver concentrated on distance runs to evaluate tyres. Jenson Button joined tester Anthony Davidson on track for BAR and was fifth quickest, Davidson one behind.

Ralf Schumacher was again putting the new Toyota TF105 through its paces and was eighth overall. Last man on the time sheet was Ferrari tester Marc Gen?, who worked on tyres, new components and electronics. The Spaniard's day was cut short when he crashed after 36 laps but he was unharmed.
