Adrian Sutil took over driving duties for the second day of the Etihad Aldar Spyker Formula One Team's Silverstone test. The German covered 370km over the course of the day as his programme carried on from yesterday's solid opening work. Concentrating on brake system development, set-up for the British Grand Prix and tyre evaluation, the team made some good progress without any major mechanical problems.

Giedo van der Garde and Christijan Albers will share the wheel tomorrow in the third and final day of the test.

Dominic Harlow, chief race and test engineer:

"A productive day for Adrian who worked on set-up in preparation for the race here in two weeks time. Various parameters including wing level, weight distribution and suspension settings were tried and we used the opportunity to look at the Hard and Medium Bridgestone Potenzas that will be available at the weekend. The team worked well executing the changes, and Adrian`s feedback was as usual calm and concise.'

Adrian Sutil:

"It was a good day without any real issues. The car was consistent without any mechanical problems, and we mainly worked on set-up for the British Grand Prix. The car was already pretty well set-up and we just worked on some small items with the tyres and the brake system. I am quite happy with the day, the balance seemed to be OK but for the Grand Prix obviously we still need to find a bit of time."
