Team Lotus Responded to those who were amazed to their slow lap times that it's very early days - not pushing yet and they did a lot on heavy tanks.

Witnesses trackside said that Webber was following Schumacher on a long run in the afternoon and had to frequently drop back to create space before closing up again. The Red Bull was visibly superior under braking and in the faster corners.

Jenson Button had his first run in the new McLaren and was very upbeat about it afterwards, telling reporters that he felt the car was a step up. He used KERS today for the first time in his career. He also tried out the adjustable rear wing, although not on a timed lap and he kept his mirrors trained on the wing during his evaluation run to monitor its movement.

Williams have been having a miserable Jerez test. Yesterday the car covered just 14 laps after various teething problems and today the car spent three and a half hours in the garage with a KERS related problem. In addition to that Pastor Maldonado went off and recovered three times at the chicane before crashing the car.


Saturday line-up:
* Red Bull – Sebastian Vettel
* McLaren – Lewis Hamilton
* Ferrari – Fernando Alonso
* Mercedes – Michael Schumacher
* Renault – Nick Heidfeld
* Williams – Rubens Barrichello
* Force India – Paul di Resta
* Sauber – Kamui Kobayashi
* Toro Rosso – Sebastien Buemi
* Lotus – Heikki Kovalainen
* Virgin – Jerome d'Ambrosio
