Williams' Nico Rosberg and Alex Wurz were remaining modest on their performances throughout practice for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone despite featuring inside the top ten in both sessions.

Insisting the adverse weather conditions and various strategies are making judging another teams' speed difficult, both Rosberg and Wurz were satisfied rather than delighted to be amongst the front runners at the end of the day.

Rosberg even believes there is more pace to come from the Willliams-Toyota package as he bids to reach the top ten shootout for the sixth time in nine races this weekend.

"Generally, I think it went ok today," Rosberg, who emerged fifth and seventh fastest in the two sessions, said. "We spent the sessions concentrating on tyre testing and we have some very interesting results, which is going to help us in qualifying. There's still some work to be done and there's definitely some more performance to get out of the car. I think we can do better tomorrow and make it into the top ten but, with the field so close, it will be very tight."

Wurz on the other hand is merely hoping to reach the second knockout stage for only the fourth time this season, the Austrian getting off to a good start with eighth best in both sessions.

"Everyone will tell you how bad the conditions were with the wind, and I'll do the same. It made testing a little bit difficult. Nevertheless, we ran through the programme and learnt how the car is working with the tyres here.

"There's not a lot you can learn, though, on a day like this but we did a lot of laps, and a long run at the end of the session. There's a bit of fine tuning to do ahead of tomorrow's qualifying, but we're looking ok."
