Toro Rosso’s Jaime Alguersuari topped day two of the second Formula One test in Jerez.

The team has performed strongly in the damp conditions at Jerez so far and Alguersuari’s team-mate Sebastian Buemi led for much of yesterday. The Spaniardwas fastest ahead of his fellow countryman and Sauber driver Pedro de la Rosa and Force India’s Adrian Sutil.

Virgin fitted a new front win to its front car late in the day. Driver Lucas di Grassi completed a seven-lap run straight out of the pits to ensure that the changes to the front wing mounting had been successful.

Relatively, Autocar is doing quite well at reporting F1 at the moment.

I'm a bit peeved that the BBC, which consistently enforces its money-wish-menaces policy in a way that would disturb a Nazi Shield Squadron, is doing almost nothing to bring up-to-date video footage and news of testing.

Autosport TV, without any Licence Fee money, seems to be capable of doing a much better job.

So, the driver with the longest name in F1 tops the qualifiers!, funny how when it comes down to the racing itself these guys are invariably bringing up the rear.I suspect most of the top teams don't play their top trumps till race day,just because you've got the best form, doesn't mean your a shoe-in too win, does it?
