The penultimate pre-season team test got underway today at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in southern Spain and both Toro Rosso F1 Team drivers will be in action over the three days at the wheel of an STR2B each.
Apart from a strong and intermittent wind making for inconsistent conditions out on track, it was a trouble free day for the two Scuderia Toro Rosso drivers. They cracked on with a programme which included set-up work and more practice for race conditions with simulated pit stops, starts and some long runs, while fine tuning the 2008 electronics programmes.
More of the same tomorrow.
