Jerez Test Day 3: Webber Quickest On First Dry Day

Mark Webber was fastest in the new Red Bull on the thir dday of the second test in Jerez.  Finally a dry day of testing.

Fernando Alonso was second in the Ferrari, as all drivers put many laps on the board.  Jenson Button was 3rd, as he claimed after the test day that he saw Ferrari as the strongest team at the moment with consistent times and reliability.

Michael Schumacher was 5th, while Robert Kubica was just behind on another consistent but good day for the Renault team and their new drivers.  Kamui Kobayashi slipped down into 8th as Sauber lost some of their early headlining pace.

The two new teams held the bottom of the tables, with Virgin narrowly beating their Lotus counterparts but both teams seem satisfied with their cars so far.
