HondaOn the second day of the test at the Paul Ricard circuit, Jenson Button took over driving duties for the Honda Racing F1 Team. Button continued the aerodynamic evaluation which Alex Wurz began yesterday using the short configuration of the adaptable Paul Ricard facility, as preparations continued for the Monaco Grand Prix. A lunchtime rain shower delayed the start of the afternoon session for a short time. Once the track had fully dried out, the Briton completed a comprehensive tyre evaluation running both types of the Bridgestone soft tyres which will be used around the street circuit in Monaco next weekend.

Button’s final lap tally was 155 laps as the team completed their preparation for the race. He will continue his running on the final day of the test tomorrow, when the track configuration will be changed to a low downforce Montreal style layout to allow the team to prepare for the Canadian Grand Prix.
