Schumacher Tops Timesheets On Day 2 Of Jerez Test

1 Mins read

Michael Schumacher set the quickest time on day two of the Jerez test as he completed 112 laps of the Circuito de Jerez on a productive day for Mercedes.

The German continued to familiarise himself with KERS whilst the team focused on system checks with shorter runs early in the day before progressing to set-up work and tyre evaluations over longer runs.

The best lap time of 1:20.352 was not, as Autosport.com reports, set on a low-fuel run – at least 10 laps worth were in the car at the time.

“It clearly was a productive day, and obviously I am happy about that,” said Schumacher. “We were focusing on long runs and being able to produce such a lot of mileage is positive in terms of reliability. It also gives us good data for the test days to come and for the developments we are working on. We are moving forward as we should during the testing period but at the same time, we are aware we have to keep pushing.”

Schumacher will be in the MGP W02 again tomorrow before handing it over to Nico Rosberg for the final day of the test on Sunday.
