The AT&T Williams team were back in action today for the last of the pre-season tests prior to the start of the new season. Ahead of the first race of the year, which will take place at Melbourne's Albert Park in just less than two weeks time, Nico Hulkernberg started the team's four day session at Jerez. Clear conditions prevailed all day allowing the team an un-interrupted run of final checks of the FW31.

Nico covered a total of 69 laps of the 4.423km track (305.187kms) and in a field of just two other drivers, Nico recorded a 1:20.015.

Sam Michael, Technical Director, Williams F1:

"Today marks the start of the last test before the new season starts. Nico Hulkenberg was driving for us and he spent the day working through aero component tests and mechanical set-up changes. No problems were encountered during the session and the weather looks good for the whole four days we're here. Nico Rosberg takes over tomorrow."
