Jerez Test Day 1: Rosberg Quickest As Virgin Well Off Pace

Nico Rosberg was fastest on a very wet and cold first day of this weeks test in Jerez.

The German romped home in his Mercedes Benz.  Sebastien Buemi looked impressive in the Toro Rosso, while Fernando Alonso the home favourite was down in 4th.

Vitantonio Liuzzi did over 70 laps in the new Force India, narrowly beating Vitaly Petrov’s time as he adjusts to driving Formula One cars.

Timo Glock brought out the Virgin into competitive running for the first time, after a series of installation laps his fastest effort was some 17 second a-drift of the best times.
