After a two week break, the team were back on track this week for the second of three pre-season Jerez tests. The five day test will afford Nico Rosberg three days and team mate Kazuki Nakajima two days behind the wheel of the all new Williams-Toyota FW31.

In preparation for the season opener in Melbourne at the end of this month, the team will spend the week testing the Melbourne aero package and Bridgestone's slick tyres, both drivers will also work through systems and reliability checks and complete a race simulation.

The opening day of the test saw seven other teams out on track, of which AT&T Williams secured the fourth quickest time of the session with Nico's 1:21.171 and cover over 310kms.

Nico Rosberg will resume testing responsibilities on Monday.
