Published by Mr. C

2010 testing

It may be the last day of the working week in Europe, but the F1 teams in Jerez are just getting into their stride. Yesterday saw a decent number of laps from the majority of the participants, and we'll be hoping for more of the same today, as it's all change on the driver front.

Vettel will get his his first taste of the RB6, Hamilton and Massa return to pick up from their teammates progress, while Sutil will take control of the VJM03 for the first time. Spare a thought though for Virgin Racing, who are experiencing a torrid first test. They're hoping that new parts will see di Grassi take to track in the afternoon.

On track action begins at 9am CET (8am GMT).
