9th March - Testing - BRAWNGP - Barcelona

Apart from the Silverstone shakdown last week the BGP001 has been left in the shade in terms of testing. So what would the first real test of the car show? Well testing is never going to give any real indication as to race performance as teams as till developing, fine tuning or even sand bagging their cars. However aside from that Jenson showed that the car does have a competitive chance notching up a 121.140 and pushed the car through 82 laps to contest its reliabilty. That put the BGP001 fourth fastest for the day with Nick Heidfeld topping the chart on a 120.338.

Button commented:

"We have enjoyed a positive opening day of running at our first test," "We did experience a problem with the gearbox late in the day but we knew we might face some reliability issues in view of our lack of testing. ... It's early days yet, but generally it has been a positive start to our pre-season preparations."

Rubens will continue testing on Tuesday (10th March)

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
