Testing catchup - A recap of the action from drivers testing out their new cars

Published by Christine

Yesterday, Alonso held onto his lead in testing, with Fisichella and Kovalainen close behind him in the Renault's. There was no 1 second lead for Alonso this time, and the top three finished very close behind each other.

The weather wasn't great, again, but still 10,000 spectators turned out to see the event. They saw three red flags, caused by Fisichella, Massa and Nick Heidfeld.

Coulthard was quite frustrated both by the weather and by a gearbox problem meaning that he didn't actually manage to complete one dry lap.

Today, in a complete change of fortunes Ralf Schumacher found himself at the top of the timesheets in the Toyota. The Renault's held onto their second and thirds, with Alonso sticking right behind them.

Kazuki Nakajima in the WilliamsF1 caused two red flags in one day and finished with the lowest time. Oh dear.

Most teams are planning to extend their testing due to the hideous weather.
