Scuderia  Toro  Rosso  continued  its  preparation  for  the  2009  season,  inSouthern Spain, where it is running two cars and three drivers over thethree day session.

The day was neatly divided in two by the weather, which was dry at first,before rain affected the afternoon running. Both cars went out on track inthe same configuration as at the previous Barcelona test, with downforcelevels replicating those expected from the new aero rules for next year.Tyres  were  also  the  same  Bridgestone  "soft"  slicks.  Both  Sebastiensconcentrated on set-up work,  with Buemi additionally  assessing variousaero  options.  The  rain  saw  a  switch  to  wet  weather  tyres,  with  the  twodrivers   running   a   comparison   between   this   year's   rain   tyre   and   adevelopment tyre for the 2010 season.

Buemi will be driving for the remaining two days,  with Bourdais runningagain  this  morning,  before  handing  over  to  Takuma  Sato  for  thefinal day and a half.
