Bad weather expected for day two in UK

The rain stayed away from warm and cloudy Silverstone on Tuesday, but day two of the group formula one test is likely to be affected by bad weather.

Nine of F1’s eleven current teams kicked off a three day test in England on Tuesday, just two days after the chequered flag at the US grand prix across the Atlantic.

Honda’s two teams, meanwhile, ran on Tuesday in ideal conditions at Jerez in Spain.

The ultra-short turnaround was not without its hiccups, though, after Toro Rosso’s Vitantonio Liuzzi started testing late due to flight delays, while Spyker had to go on without some of its equipment due to the bad weather in the States.

“A thank you to Ferrari for helping us this morning when we had the delays,” said technical director James Key.

BMW’s Nick Heidfeld, meanwhile, had to finish his day early with slight back pain, while Ralf Schumacher set the pace for Toyota after a low-fuel qualifying run.
