Programme

Second and final day of testing for Jenson at Jerez this week. The team began the day with a continuation of the early-morning aero mapping it started yesterday. After a successful number of aero runs, the morning's running centred on finding suitable mechanical and aero set-ups with the MP4-25.

In the afternoon, the programme focused on longer running, evaluating tyres on a number of varying fuel-loads.

At the conclusion of his test, Jenson declared himself much happier with the seat and installation and was happy with the progress the team is making with the new car.

He made a precautionary stop just before the day's end when a warning light came on in the cockpit.

Lewis will continue the running on Friday and Saturday.
