More unsettled weather prevailed in Silverstone today, but the Panasonic Toyota Racing team made the best use of the session. Mika Salo's work was concentrated on aerodynamics, whilst Allan McNish completed a Michelin tyre test.

Mika Salo

"We have again been affected by the rain today. Between the showers we managed to complete our aerodynamic programme for Canada. We collected all the necessary data and the new front and rear wing assemblies are looking good. I enjoy Montreal and I think the car should go relatively well round there."

Allan McNish

"It was another day fragmented by the weather. We continued to try and get our tyre test done and in the end we did a limited programme. However things are shaping up well and the car was feeling good today. Personally it has been nice to be back on home soil and I am looking forward to the next few races."
