Jaguar Racing began its Hungarian Grand Prix weekend with the customary two hour Friday morning test session. Progress was made in information gathering with regard to tyre choice but Mark Webber's running was restricted by an apparent engine problem.

Webber, who was fourth quickest in the session said: "I got back out in the T-car but it disrupted things a little. The real problem is how incredibly dusty the track is. It's rarely used during the rest of the year and so it takes a long time to get a groover of rubber down on the surface."

"Even by the end of the session there was still very little grip out there. It means you can't really develop the set up the way you want to because the grip level is constantly changing things. Still, it's the same for everyone."

Justin Wilson, in his second race meeting with the team, was fifth fastest after completing 40 laps: "I'm quite satisfied. So far, so good," he said. "I'm just glad to get more seat time in the car, going through the routine and getting more familar with everything."
