Honda fastest on day one of Valencia test

Overnight rain and cold track temperatures in Valencia meant that both Rubens Barrichello and Anthony Davidson ran on wet tyres this morning.

Both drivers began with short set-up runs before practicing qualifying procedures to adapt to the new 2006 qualifying format.

The drivers spent the afternoon session completing further set-up work, running on intermediate tyres as the track dried out. The test programme was completed with a second qualifying practice at the end of the day.

Both drivers completed 62 laps in total today, with Rubens setting the fastest time -- a 01:19.384 -- and Anthony setting the second fastest time -- a 01:20.001.

Jenson Button will take over from Anthony in chassis RA106-02 for the second day of the test tomorrow.
