Kamui Kobayashi made his first appearance in Jerez today has he completed 84 laps of testing in the new Sauber C30.

The Japanese driver finished fifth fastest as Sauber enjoyed another productive day in Southern Spain.

“After not having been at the wheel in Valencia for a long time, today was Kamui's first day of proper testing with the C30 and the latest Pirelli tyres,” said technical director James Key. “We have been running on used tyres and did some general set up work, but actually not a huge amount of performance work.

“In the morning we did general mechanical work and set up changes, checking directions we found when Sergio (Perez) was driving. In the afternoon we also tested some new development items and concentrated on longer runs, which in the end were cut short due to an engine problem. We are also looking forward to a full test programme for tomorrow.”

Kobayashi will be back in the car tomorrow for the fourth and final day of testing in Jerez.
