Panasonic Toyota Racing

Barcelona Test Day 2

Location: Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain
Driver: Timo Glock
Track Length: 4.655km

Timo Glock returned to action for Panasonic Toyota Racing today as the team continued its four-day test at Barcelona. Conditions were again cool around the Circuit de Catalunya but the track remained dry for the whole day's running. Timo spent most of his time continuing his work on set-up for the Spanish Grand Prix, along with dampers and suspension. Late in the afternoon he tried out Bridgestone's new slick tyres which will be introduced into F1 in 2009. He finished the day with over 100 laps. Tomorrow Jarno Trulli is scheduled to take over the driving duties as Toyota continues its preparations for next week's race.

"This has been a positive two days of testing for me. We spent the morning continuing our set-up work for the Spanish Grand Prix and collecting data on various systems. We're going in the right direction so we hope that can help us next week. Towards the end of the day we tried the new slick tyres for next year. We gathered some important information but we still need to learn more. For now I am more focused on the current situation, in particular the race here next weekend. The work we have done here will hopefully make us well prepared."

Gerd Pfeiffer, Test Team Manager
"Today we had a busy programme with a variety of different elements. In the morning we kept up our work on set-up for the Spanish Grand Prix, along with some tests on other parts including dampers and suspension. We continued that work after lunch before switching late in the afternoon to the slick tyres that are going to be introduced in 2009. Overall we made it through everything we had planned and collected useful data."
