Giancarlo Fisichella and Takuma Sato today completed DHL Jordan Honda's three-day test in changeable weather conditions at Silverstone.

Fisichella completed 57 laps and set the fifth quickest time of the day. He concentrated on Bridgestone's tyre test programme, front wing aerodynamic developments, traction control and general set-up.

Sato worked on brake compounds, aerodynamic work, traction control, Honda's engine development programme and general set-up. His best lap time was the sixth fastest of the day's session and he completed 50 laps. The team spent an hour of the session practising pit stops with Takuma Sato, then rain this afternoon forced the drivers to alter their programmes and work on wet weather set-up.

"We were quick this morning," said Takuma Sato, "it was cold, with no wind, everyone did quick laps and we were in good shape. In the afternoon there were showers so we tried some wet set-ups, which worked well. I hope we're making steps in the right direction."
