Today's testing in Spain continues the exciting trend: The Brawns were still on top, but they were edged out slightly by Fernando Alonso in his Renault. This is great news to see the Renault back on form. But the other aspect is that the McLaren of Lewis Hamilton was still down the pecking order, and the team has said that the car still needs work, that it was not up to what they had hoped. The season is truly shaping up to be unpredictable and competitive.
Here are today's times:
- 1 Fernando Alonso Renault 1m18.343 103
- 2 Rubens Barrichello Brawn GP 1m18.398 62
- 3 Jenson Button Brawn GP 1m18.892 12
- 4 Lewis Hamilton Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 1m19.513 87
- 5 Nico Rosberg Williams 1m19.783 123
