AT&T Williams have concluded this week's four day test in Jerez today. With Kazuki Nakajima behind the wheel of the FW30, the team focussed on preparation work for the Hungarian Grand Prix, evaluating set-up options for the Budapest track.

Under blisteringly hot conditions, Kazuki clocked 100 laps of the 4.574km track and set the sixth fastest time of the day with a 1:19.724.

Over the four days, the team's three drivers, Nico Rosberg, Kazuki Nakajima and Nico Hulkenberg shared testing duties and covered a combined total of 1,637kms while working through a busy test schedule of race preparations and 2009 tyre evaluations.

Rod Nelson, Chief Operations Engineer:

"The AT&T Williams team wrapped up a very hot and humid four day test at Jerez today. Test driver Nico Hulkenberg drove for the first day and completed set-up work and onboard systems checks before handing the car over to the two race drivers for the next three days of driving duties. Over the four days, the team completed some extensive testing on the latest generation of Bridgestone slick tyres adding to the knowledge base required to optimise the cars for the new regulations in 2009. Back on this year's grooved rubber, both drivers then did some work on systems and set-ups in preparation for next weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix where we expect similar weather."
