    Glock out on track first for Toyota this morning. But there’s rain at Jerez today and more is expected during the course of the test. This satellite picture is quite zoomed out but there’s no missing the sizeable rain cloud heading for southern Spain:

    Kubica first to do a time, but his 1’43.073 shows how wet the track is.

    I really find quite interesting that there has been quiet a lot rain in almost every test session in a season we have a huge test restriction. I wonder how small teams can cope with this. To me it seems in-season test ban could be lifted during the season.

    Midday at Jerez and Massa, Piquet and Vettel haven’t set a time yet.

    According to the link Tirante posted a lot of the teams are testing 2010 tyres today.

  10. Keith, they remark that those tyre-testings are a rumour at the press-room, maybe taking place because of the weather

  11. :-) … good enough! Anyway, …. ‘if you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact me’ :-)
