Glock impresses at Jerez

Timo Glock was an impressive performer on the second day of F1 testing at Jerez as Virgin tried out its new moveable rear wing for the first time.

The main focus of the day was to allow the German to continue to familiarise himself with the new MVR-02 before focusing on the blown wing and the impact it has on the behaviour of the car.

A quick lap of 1m 22.208s was good enough to put Glock eighth on the times, ahead of both Vitaly Petrov and Pastor Maldonado and only six-tenths of a second behind Mark Webber's Red Bull.

“Today I was able to spend more time in the car and complete more laps than yesterday, so we are making steady progress at this early stage with the new car,” he said. “We tested the moveable rear wing for the first time and it will be interesting to use during the races this season. I leave Jerez with a good feeling and now I can't wait to jump in the car again next week in Barcelona.”

Team principal John Booth was also pleased with the way the day had gone and said the team now needed to work hard to retain the momentum it is currently carrying.

“Today we completed another 57 laps which provides us with more valuable information. It was very useful to run the car with the moveable wing operational for the first time,” he said. “Timo has done a very good job in the car over the past two days and we are quickly understanding the MVR-02. We look forward to two more positive days of running and to feeding this information back into the development programme to ensure we maintain our current momentum.”
