For both drivers and their engineers this was a positive day with track conditions very similar to those experienced yesterday. In the morning Nick Heidfeld briefly did some aero work and then in the afternoon did both set-up and tyre work.

Jacques Villeneuve, on his first of two days at the test, did aero and set up work and also tyre evaluation work for Michelin for the Barcelona race.

What comes next: Nick Heidfeld has now left the test and so Robert Kubica will take over again in chassis 07, having driven chassis 06 on Wednesday.

Both Robert and Jacques Villeneuve will continue a varied testing schedule, with the team working toward both the first European race at Imola, a week this weekend, and the race here at Barcelona two weeks later.
