Williams driver Nico Hulkenberg was fastest on day two of the final Formula One test in Barcelona.
Most of the teams who took part today ran on low fuel to prepare qualifying set-ups, before switching to longer race simulation stints in the afternoon. Teams also took advantage of the dry weather, something which hasn’t been a regular feature of the year’s previous tests.
Hulkenburg was faster than Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, who had been setting the pace for much of the day.
Virgin was back on track with Timo Glock after his team mate Lucas di Grassi damaged the team’s car yesterday. Jarno Trulli ran for Lotus – the two aforementioned teams are the only ones of F1’s new quartet to take part in the pre season testing following the continued absence of both Campos Meta and US F1.
