The Formula One teams stay in Spain this week, moving from Barcelona to Jerez, as they continue their intensive winter test schedule in preparation for the 2007 Formula One season.

Running gets underway on Wednesday, with ten of the 11 teams scheduled to attend the three-day test at the Spanish circuit. Spyker are the only team expected to be absent and, with the rest of the field continuing where they left off in Barcelona, it looks set to be a very a busy few days.

Race drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Heikki Kovalainen will be in action for Renault, alongside runners for Ferrari, McLaren, Toyota, BMW Sauber, Williams and Super Aguri.

Honda are also due to kick off their programme on Wednesday, although Jenson Button is set to miss out again as he continues to recover from the rib injury he sustained in a recent karting accident.

Sister teams Red Bull and Toro Rosso will also attend the three-day test, although Toro Rosso will field just one car. Both teams will again prioritise tyre work and hope to spend this week’s session evaluating Bridgestone’s softer compounds.

Check back throughout the week for daily testing reports and the latest pictures. Note - all schedules are provisional and subject to change.
