Glock Fastest On Jerez Day 3
Timo Glock was fastest on day 3 of the Jerez test.
He managed to keep ontop of the timesheets as he was yesterday, but got much more running in thanks to the sunnier conditions experienced.
“That was a productive day,” said Glock. “This morning we were again a bit unlucky with the conditions, which made the race simulation quite tough. But it was useful to find out when to change to slick tyres and our pace wasn’t bad.
“Then we got some dry running for the rest of the day. We did a lot of set-up work and late on we did some shorter runs to make it through the programme. We’ve made it through a lot of miles over these two days and we’re making useful progress.”
Felipe Massa was second again for Ferrari, for the 3rd day in a row. The Brazilian was joined by Michael Schumacher who did not race, but observed the session from the pitwall in his position as an advisor to the team.
Fernando Alonso was 3rd, showing more pace and Piquet had done over the previous 2 days. he was followed by Kovalainen and Sutil who showed amazing pace over just 63 laps.
Webber, Kubica and Rosberg completed the line-up.
