Mechanical problems cost Barrichello precious dry track time

F1 Test, Jerez, Circuit Permanente de Jerezes

The Williams team were present once again at the Circuito de Jerez in Southern Spain for the third round of testing of the season, where Rubens Barrichello was on hand to drive the FW32. The Brazlian managed the second highest amount of laps of the day with 109 total, although the constant rain and some mechanical problems only allowed him to post the tenth fasted lap.

Sam Michael, Technical Director: "Today the track was generally damp with only a few windows to run dry tyres. Although we covered a good number of laps, we had a couple of small mechanical problems that cost us track time when the grip was at its highest. We continue running tomorrow with Rubens."
