Just seven laps for Button on test day one at Barcelona

A hydraulic leak required a full power-unit change.

The day kicked off with Jenson conducting some aerodynamic tests, which meant he only completed a single timed lap.

After just seven laps, Jenson noted a vibration and brought the car back to the pits, where we discovered a hydraulic leak that required a full power-unit change. The time required to complete the change unfortunately meant that our running for the day was over before lunchtime.

Today’s unofficial testing times

1 Felipe Massa -  Williams  (1m23.500s / 103 laps)
