Schumacher finishes Day 2 on top
Michael Schumacher took over the MGP W02 car in Jerez today for the second day of this week's test program and turned the fastest lap of the day ahead of the Ferrari of Felipe Massa.

Running with the Mercedes KERS operational throughout the day to continue Michael's familiarization process, the team focused on system checks with shorter runs in the early part of the day, before progressing to set-up work and tire evaluations with the medium and super soft Pirelli tire compounds over longer runs.

With good reliability and mileage accumulation, Michael and the team had a productive day covering 112 laps. Michael will continue the program tomorrow with Nico taking over on Sunday.

Michael Schumacher: "It clearly was a productive day, and obviously I am happy about that. We were focusing on long runs and being able to produce such a lot of mileage is positive in terms of reliability. It also gives us good data for the test days to come and for the developments we are working on. We are moving forward as we should during the testing period but at the same time, we are aware we have to keep pushing."
