Latest testing news and pictures from Jerez
19 February 2010

Mark Webber set the pace at the Jerez F1 test on Friday, as times tumbled as drivers finally got some dry running.

The early wet weather had made for a frustrating morning, with Virgin Racing's Lucas Di Grassi making a notable trip into the gravel trap.

Jenson Button (McLaren) and Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) have set competitive times in all weather conditions, and is currently second fastest.

To be honest, I find the analysis pretty boring. Why not just have a two-hour procession of bikinis (emblazoned with sponsors' logos) being modelled in sunny, exotic locations? The drivers could draw straws for the result of the race in some back office.
