Jerez testing Dec 09 - Day three - The final day of young driver testing in Spain gets underway

Published by Mr. C

With days one and two of F1 testing behind us, attention now turns to the final time we'll see cars running before the end of 2009. It's likely that this is also the last time we'll catch many of the current iterations of these chassis side-by-side on track.

We had a great debate in yesterday's thread about the amount of interest this particular test holds. I still remain excited to see what's going down in Southern Spain, so feel free to dive on in to the comments if you spot anything of note.

Circuit information

  • Track length: 4.423km
  • Longest straight: 0.600km
  • Corners: 13
  • Lap record: 1:23.135 (Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Williams, 1997)

The Jerez circuit is located in the South of Spain not far from the cost of Portugal.

It seems this collection of drivers are doing their level best not to embarrass themselves, so neither the runoff areas nor the marshals have seen much action as yet.

Weather information

Wednesday's predicted rain didn't amount to much, or cause any chaos, and today's outlook sees the return of the big yellow ball. Another great day to be testing a Formula 1 car.
