Less than 48 hours after the thrills of the European Grand Prix, the teams are expected back on track on Tuesday to make crucial preparations before next weekend's Hungarian race. Most will be in action for three days at the Spanish circuit of Jerez.

In line with this year’s testing restrictions, squads will be limited to one car per day, with a mixture of race and test drivers conducting the development work.

Toyota will be among the teams in Spain. Despite showing promise during qualifying at the Nurburgring, the Japanese squad will be working hard to find more race pace with tester Franck Montagny at the wheel of the TF107.

Championship leaders McLaren will also be testing in Jerez. Lewis Hamilton is expected to be in action for the team over the three days, as is test driver Pedro de la Rosa. Joining the British squad will be Renault, Honda, Red Bull and BMW Sauber.

Elsewhere, Toro Rosso will carry out their week’s work at the Mugello track, near Florence in Italy. Vitantonio Liuzzi will test on Tuesday, whilst team mate Scott Speed will replace him for the final day on Thursday.

Check back throughout the week for daily updates on the teams’ progress. Note - all schedules are provisional and subject to change.
