Mark Webber and Antonio Pizzonia continued testing for the BMW WilliamsF1 Team at Barcelona today. Both drivers focussed on development work.

Conditions were slightly worse than yesterday, as several clouds and sturdy winds made their appearance at the 'Circuit the Catalunya'. However, temperatures crept up to 14 degrees.

Mark continued to settle in at the BMW WilliamsF1 Team and managed to get further mileage in the WilliamsF1 BMW FW26 under his belt. The Australian also worked on chassis development in the morning before switching over to Michelin tyre tests in the afternoon.

He completed 101 laps, posted a time of 1:15.172 minutes and improved on his personal best at Barcelona.

Antonio Pizzonia meanwhile conducted traction control testing, but was hampered by gearbox problems. He set a time of 1:15.513 minutes and completed 36 laps.

Tim Newton (Test Team Manager, WilliamsF1):

"We've had another productive day today at Barcelona. Mark continued on his learning curve in the FW26, working on chassis set-up and tyre testing with Michelin. By the end of the day, he had completed an impressive 101 laps and set the second quickest time of the session behind Zonta."

"Antonio continued brake work and systems checks on the interim car but was hindered by gearbox problems. Mark will complete the team's programme tomorrow with a wet test for Michelin."
