Jerez testing Dec 09 - Day two - Heavy rain is predicted as the second day of running begins in Spain

Published by Mr. C

Day one of F1 testing came and went and now the teams repeat and rinse all over again.

Yesterday we had chance to get familiar with new drivers in old cars. To figure who wore what helmet and to see where they fitted into the grand scheme of things. Today should be a little easier in that respect.

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.
