Nico Hulkenberg concluded his winter testing programme in Barcelona today, on top of the time sheets. Day two at Barcelona saw eleven teams out on track, all busy working through pre-Bahrain preparation programmes under calm Spanish skies and temperatures of upto 17o.C. AT&T Williams continued set-up work on the FW32, while also evaluating some new aero parts and practising "slow" pitstops in order for Nico to familiarise himself with stopping in the box.

Despite several safety car incidents, Nico covered 99 laps of the 4.655km track and finished his last day before his debut Grand Prix in P1 with a 1:20.614. Rubens Barrichello takes over running tomorrow.

Sam Michael: Nico finished his last day of winter testing today with a good run of laps. Our programme included the evaluation of a new sidepod, starts practice and some additional work on the set-up of the FW32. We're making progress, but there's still plenty to do.

Nico Hulkenberg: We've had a good test here. P1 today is nice but means nothing, to be honest. We're not in Bahrain yet! It's positive for the team, and for me, to know what the car can do though. We did a lot of set-up work today and have found some interesting things so I feel ready and confident to go to Bahrain now.
