Grosjean tops day two in Spain

“It was a very interesting day with such a variation in track conditions, but it was ideal for me to practice in the sort of conditions we might experience in Australia or Malaysia,” he said. “I ran the full wets, the intermediates and it was good to discover the crossover point with the slick tyres. I only ran the medium compound dry tyres today, but it was difficult to do too much set-up work because the wind was affecting the aero balance quite a lot. Overall I felt positive today and whenever I went out on track the lap times were competitive.”

Max Chllton and Giedo van der Garde followed behind, while the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg and Fernando Alonso's Ferari ended up bottom of the times after the pair focused on longer runs rather than chasing quick times.

“It was great to run in the wet today which I have not done so far during our pre-season testing programme,” Rosberg admitted. “The car felt good in those conditions and it's important to have had this experience as there is always the chance of rain in Melbourne.

"This afternoon, we did some race simulation work which was very productive. I am happy with my mileage today as every single lap is important for the learning process, and so overall it was a positive day for me here in Montmelo.”
