Feb.15 (GMM) The group test action has subsided for now, but the engines will continue to sound at the Circuito de Jerez.
After a troubled debut test for the new Virgin team last week, the British outfit was still on track at the weekend for promotional and sponsor filming.
There will be more action on Monday and Tuesday, despite the test proper only recommencing at the Spanish venue for another four days beginning on Wednesday.
The first two days at Jerez this week will be Ferrari’s, with the Italian team’s drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa exclusively on track for filming purposes.
McLaren had booked the track for similar reasons just prior to last week’s Jerez test.
Eleven teams will be in action in Spain this week, with Lotus set to join all of last week’s Jerez contenders with its newly launched T127.
Of the confirmed 2010 entrants, only the reportedly troubled Campos and USF1 teams will be missing.
