The team opened the second of this winter's pre-season tests in Jerez with Rubens Barrichello returning to the cockpit for day one of a four day test. The team concentrated on long runs this morning to carry out systems checks on the FW32, while in the afternoon effort was focused on set-up work.

Today's session, which saw eleven teams out on track including new entrants Lotus and Virgin, was somewhat compromised by intermittent rain while average ambient temperatures floated around the 14C mark.

Rubens will continue the team's schedule of work tomorrow, while Nico Hulkenberg will assume testing duties on Friday and Saturday.

Sam Michael, Technical Director: Today the track was generally damp with only a few windows to run dry tyres. Although we covered a good number of laps, we had a couple of small mechanical problems that cost us track time when the grip was at its highest. We continue running tomorrow with Rubens.
