Rain washes out testing in Portugal  Torrential rain storms forced Formula One teams to forego testing Thursday at Portimao in Portugal.

"A very wet day," said Renault's Fernando Alonso. "It's a shame we couldn't get anything done today because at this stage of the season you need to maximize the track time available.

"Still, I was pleased to have a full day in the dry yesterday and we learnt a lot and have some valuable data.

"I will be in the car for the next test in Jerez where hopefully we can make some good progress with the performance of the car."

"It's a pity to end the test like this but there is nothing we can do about it; that's just the way it is and it is the same for all the teams here," added Timo Glock.

"At least at our next test in Bahrain we can expect much better weather and many more laps, which is what we need to develop the new car."
