While the majority of the teams dodged the rain showers at Silverstone, Honda and Super Aguri basked in the sunshine on Wednesday as they tested for a second day at the Spanish circuit of Jerez.

Although Honda had planned to run race driver Jenson Button, Christian Klien remained behind the wheel of the RA107. Button had arrived in Jerez complaining of a slight back injury which he believes he sustained during his first-corner tangle at Indianapolis on Sunday.

As Button rested, Klien covered 61 laps, carrying out a detailed evaluation of the team’s various aerodynamic and mechanical updates. No lap times were issued by the Japanese team.

James Rossiter, meanwhile, continued to test for Super Aguri. Rossiter completed 66 laps and set a best time of 1m 20.960s in the SA07. The British tester worked through some control systems tuning in the morning before switching to set-up and rear suspension evaluations in the afternoon.

The test will continue on Thursday, with Button and Super Aguri race driver Anthony Davidson expected in action.
