Takuma Sato continued his preparations for next week's British Grand Prix when he tested with DHL Jordan Honda for a second day in Barcelona, Spain. He set the 6th fastest time, two seconds shy of the fastest car of the day driven by Renault's Jensen Button.

The Jordan test team concentrated on a variety of system tests including chassis set-ups and tyres, while Honda also continued engine development work. A couple of problems, including Red Flag sessions due to other cars going off or stopping on the track, halted Sato during the day but were soon rectified.

Overall the team engineers were happy with what was achieved and the test will continue tomorrow with Giancarlo Fisichella. The Italian was due to drive this afternoon but an air traffic control problem prevented him arriving on time.
