Team McLaren Mercedes (Pedro de La Rosa / Gary Paffett) started its second test day under a cloudy sky, joined by Panasonic Toyota Racing (Ricardo Zonta / Ralf Schumacher), Renault F1 (Heikki Kovalainen) et BMW Sauber (Robert Kubica).

The drivers tested the 3E SC track solution (3,818 km) with a shiny and cloudy weather (16°C air temperature and 24°C on the track this afternoon).

The best lap was set by Finnish driver Heikki Kovalainen (Renault F1) in 1:04.466. Pedro de La Rosa (McLaren Mercedes) had completed today the greatest number of laps (169).

The test will continue tomorrow with the same teams on the same track solution. Italian Jarno Trulli will take over from Ralf Schumacher (Panasonic Toyota Racing) and Nick Heidfeld will take over from Robert Kubica (BMW Sauber).
