Title: Nakajima flies as F1 testing ends
Post by: John S on March 19, 2009, 06:43:18 PM
Have Williams and McLaren finally shown their hand for the season opener in Melbourne or were the conditions just right on a rubbered in track to make them look good?  :DntKnw:

It's still a pretty impressive time from Nakajima though!   :good:

Kazuki Nakajima set the quickest time of the week at the Jerez circuit, as Formula 1 testing came to an end for the 2009 season.

Nakajima's 1:17.494 lap was nearly four tenths of a second quicker than the previous best, set by Brawn GP's Jenson Button on Tuesday.

The Williams FW31's strong pace added more intrigue ahead of the start of the season in Melbourne in less than two weeks' time.

Nakajima finished ahead of McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen, who set the British squad's best time of the week after 84 laps. The Finn's day ended a few minutes early after his car stopped on track.

With in-season testing banned this year, Jerez's test was the final one for several months.

Today's times:

Pos  Driver              Team                       Time        Laps
 1.  Nakajima      Williams-Toyota      (B)  1:17.494   102
 2.  Kovalainen    McLaren-Mercedes   (B)   1:17.946    84
