Testing in Jerez Week 2 – Times, Photos & Button Fastest

Wednesday through Saturday last week so the 2nd week of testing in Jerez and for Lewis Hamilton it was a case of very bad luck as it rained for his 2 days of testing and then cleared up for Jenson Button’s 2 days on Friday and Saturday. Jenson took full advantage of clear conditions to post the fastest time of the week on Saturday, a 1.18.871 after completing 107 laps. If you remember, Lewis Hamilton finished week 1’s testing with the fastest lap time of 1.19.583. It would have been interesting to see what sort of time Lewis would have posted in dry conditions, with the improvements on the McLaren MP4-25 from week 1 to week 2. Worth pointing out that even in the poor conditions Lewis Hamilton still managed to be 2nd fastest on day 1, though only 10th fastest on day 2 which was due to McLaren’s planned testing being thrown out the window by the bad weather.

A much better pre-season than 12 months ago for McLaren, and let’s hope that continues when resumes at Circuit de Catalunya on Thursday, the last testing session before the Bahrain Grand Prix in March.
