Jerez Testing Round 2 Day 1: Vettel Quickest

Sebastian Vettel made the most of the poor conditions, slotting the new Red Bull Rb6 onto the top of the timesheets on the second part of the Jerez test, day 1.

The Red Bull Racing favourite slipped ahead of Lewis Hamilton in 2nd, and Felipe Massa in 3rd both drivers making good times given the conditions.

Pedro de La Rosa was 5th, lamenting the conditions but still ended ahead of Michael Schumacher.  Paul di Resta got his first taste of testing, gaining 8th place in the Force India as he shared the cockpit with Adrian Sutil.

Lotus made their debut with the T127 and Malaysian driver Fairuz Fauzy getting behind the wheel with a solid day of testing, and Lotus declaring themselves pleased.  Virgin looked to be struggling a little still, not finding their feet as quickly as Lotus.
