The Team McLaren Mercedes team continued its second day of testing today at Paul Ricard, with Alex Wurz and Pedro de la Rosa behind the wheel of MP4-20s.

Alex completed his programme today which was concentrating on car set up and Michelin tyre development work for the forthcoming San Marino Grand Prix. Alex did have a spin this morning, however the car was not damaged and after being wheeled back to the garage, he continued with his planned programme.

Pedro was concentrating on set up work this morning. He experienced mechanical problems this afternoon which resulted in him losing three hours of track time while the team repaired the car. He then went back out on track at approximately 16:00, but suffered an engine failure at 17:15 prematurely ending his programme.

Alex was the seventh fastest man on track today, completing 139 laps, with a fastest time of 1m03.790s. Pedro ended up eighth with a time of 1m03.863s.

Alex and Pedro will continue with the final day of testing tomorrow.
