|30 January: Valencia Test Day 1
Prior to the start of the Valencia test proper tomorrow, the WilliamsF1 Team rolled out their 2006 race car, the FW28, for its inaugural laps today. With Nico Rosberg behind the wheel, the team recorded 43 trouble free laps despite the poor, wet weather.
Tomorrow, the team will start testing the new car in earnest, with the programme extending until Friday Feb 3 at the Spanish circuit.
Commenting on today’s promising progress, WilliamsF1’s Technical Director, Sam Michael said, “Today was spent completing filming work with the FW28 before the proper testing begins tomorrow. It was cold and damp in the morning and then rain settled in for the afternoon. Even so, we managed to complete a few systems checks on the FW28 with no problems at all. Tomorrow Mark will drive the FW28 and Nico will drive the FW27C interim car, both with V8 engines.”
