Good day for Ricciardo with Red Bull

F1 Test, Jerez, Circuit Permanente de Jerezes

For his second day in an F1 cockpit, Daniel Ricciardo tackled a similar programme to yesterday, which involved getting to grips with the actual driving and procedures that are unique to these cars, as well as trying two different tyre compounds.

The Australian also carried out various tests aimed at the 2010 season: aero and brake testing, as well as running the car in the very heavy configuration resulting from next year’s ban on race refuelling.

“I found it a bit easier today,” said Daniel Ricciardo. “I knew what to expect this morning and the procedures were easier to understand, so I was able to concentrate on improving my driving and hopefully give my best in terms of providing the engineers with good feedback.”

Ricciardo will be back in the cockpit tomorrow for the final day of testing this year.
