Second day of the 2nd winter testing session at Barcelona went quite well because of some dry weather today.
Grosjean did his quickest laptime on soft dry Pirelli tyres with his Lotus E21 during a session where Lotus wanted to see the difference between the medium and soft compounds.
2nd quickest driver Button told that McLaren en he is getting to know the McLaren MP4-28 car bit by bit. He was quite positive, but still said they didn’t had the pace. Never the less he said that they had the best day of testing in 2013 today.
3rd fastest today Pastor Maldonado and his Williams FW35 had to quit testing a bit early when his car stalled at the end of the pitlane.
It was quite a disappointing day for Fernando Alonso. Although Nico Rosberg with his Mercedes W04 and Alonso where doing long runs on hard tyres today, Ferando and his Ferrari F138 stopped at the end of t he pitlane before lunch time and where the slowest today.
