Williams suffers test crash setback

Williams suffered its second major accident of this week's Barcelona test when Nico Rosberg crashed heavily this morning.

Rosberg was unhurt in the incident at Turn 10, but the front and right hand side of his car were wrecked.

The team had already been forced to work late into Monday night to repair the chassis damaged by test driver Kazuki Nakajima in a shunt on day one of the test.

Williams has now abandoned the test and will not participate in the extra session on Thursday that was added following yesterday's heavy rain.

"The bodywork is all finished and the monocoque... we are looking at it now but does not look good either," chief operations engineer Rod Nelson told autosport.com.

"It really has not been our week, but Nico is okay and we are going home now."

The Ferrari team continued to show their strong form by topping the times for the third consecutive day in testing at the Barcelona circuit.

While Kimi Raikkonen was quickest on the first two days, his teammate Felipe Massa replaced him both behind the wheel of the F2007 and on top of the times after another good session for the Italian squad.

Massa, who covered over 100 laps as Ferrari continued to work on new aerodynamic components, was three tenths of a second quicker than Red Bull's Mark Webber, second quickest in the RB3.

Jarno Trulli was third fastest for Toyota, with Renault's Heikki Kovalainen in fourth after a massive 121 laps with the R27 car.

World champion Fernando Alonso, who on Tuesday completed just one lap to the disappointment of his fans, had a more productive session, working with McLaren's new, three-plane front wing, tested on track for the first time on Monday.

Alonso posted the fifth quickest time after 73 laps.

Williams were forced to call an end to their test a day early after Nico Rosberg wrecked his car in a high-speed crash early in the morning. The German driver was unhurt but was taken to hospital as a precaution.

"Nico went off on his first run and had a crash that resulted in heavy chassis damage," said technical director Sam Michael after the crash. "Nico's fine, however the damage cannot be repaired at the circuit so the test team is now returning to the factory."

The Spyker team also finished their day early after Christijan Albers was hit by mechanical problems in the afternoon. Like Williams, the Dutch squad will not be testing tomorrow.

"We started out quite well this morning. We were working on some race set ups and I was quite happy as we improved the car's handling," said Albers. "I did a lot of laps and I tried to push really hard before trying some new tyres in the afternoon, but then unfortunately we had a failure.

"It's a shame as it took our afternoon away, but I think we can be pleased with today - overall it was a good day's work."

The session took place under clear skies, although a heavy wind in the afternoon complicated matters for the drivers.

Today's times:

Pos Driver Team Time Laps
1. Massa Ferrari (B) 1:21.506 103
2. Webber Red Bull-Renault (B) 1:21.804 95
3. Trulli Toyota (B) 1:22.309 107
4. Kovalainen Renault (B) 1:22.378 121
5. Alonso McLaren-Mercedes (B) 1:22.579 73
6. Kubica BMW Sauber (B) 1:22.653 83
7. Button Honda (B) 1:22.765 114
8. Davidson Super Aguri-Honda (B) 1:23.027 112
9. Speed Toro Rosso-Ferrari (B) 1:23.713 96
10. Albers Spyker-Ferrari (B) 1:24.870 63
11. Rosberg Williams-Toyota (B) no time 2

The new Macca front wing actually brings their upper element up to about the height of the F2007 and most other cars. A benefit, or problem, from having such a low nose seems to be that they couldn't get the element as high as they wanted or needed to
