The AT&T Williams team commenced a three day test at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya on Thursday, where the team's official test driver, Nico Hulkenberg, opened the first day of running in the FW30.

Joined by representatives from the rest of the Formula One grid bar Force India, Nico worked through a set-up program and full race distance in preparation for the forthcoming European rounds in France and the UK. At the end of the day he had set the seventh fastest time of the day with a 1:23.619 on lap 85 out of 112.

“Nico Hulkenberg was driving for us today on day one at Barcelona," said Dickie Stanford, Test Team Manager. “He concentrated on race set-ups in the morning and then moved on to a race distance this afternoon. We completed 112 laps with no problems before rain stopped play an hour before the end of the session. Nico Rosberg joins the test tomorrow and will focus on preparation work for Magny-Cours."
