Barcelona day one - Heidfeld leads, Button stars

Scris de

BMW Sauber’s Nick Heidfeld may have ended the first day of testing at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya on top, but all anyone could talk about at the end of Monday’s session was Jenson Button’s sterling performance in the newly-launched Brawn car.

After leading for most of the day, Button eventually finished in fourth, with a time just eight-tenths of a second adrift of Heidfeld’s quickest lap.


The session, the first of the year to feature all 10 teams in action with their new cars, started wet, but with no further rain showers the Spanish track quickly dried out. Finishing behind Heidfeld, but ahead of Button, were Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen and Toyota’s Jarno Trulli in second and third respectively.

Heidfeld covered 92 laps as he concentrated on several race-related procedures, including pit-stop practice, and fine tuning his working relationship with his engineers and mechanics. The German also took advantage of the good weather to carry out some set-up and aero work. He will continue to test the F1.09 on Tuesday.

Raikkonen, meanwhile, completed 81 laps in the F60 for Ferrari. The Finn was charged with finding the car’s best set-up, evaluating its reliability and comparing various aerodynamic solutions. He will be in action for the Italian team again on Tuesday. Trulli, meanwhile, covered 121 laps for Toyota as he worked on the TF109’s aerodynamics, brakes and set-up.

"This morning started off with drizzly conditions but the rain quickly tailed off, giving us the chance to have a good day's work,” said the Italian. “The car felt well balanced from the start and we worked on several new things on the aero side which gave us positive results. We were competitive throughout the day and we collected a lot of data so this was a useful start to the test."

More details to follow.
