With just three races left this season, the majority of Formula One teams are expected to be out in force in Jerez this week for a three-day test at the Spanish circuit. Most will be in action from Tuesday as they begin preparations for the next round of the championship, the Japanese Grand Prix, which will be held at the Fuji Speedway later this month.

In line with this year’s testing restrictions, teams will be limited to one car per day, with a mixture of race and test drivers conducting the development work. Honda and Toyota are both expected to be in attendance, keen to improve the performance of their respective cars ahead of their home race in Japan.

Test driver Timo Glock will be in the hot seat on Tuesday for BMW Sauber, before handing over to race driver Nick Heidfeld for the final two days. Williams will also attend, alongside Red Bull and Toro Rosso. Spyker, however, are not scheduled to appear. The Dutch team planned to return to their Silverstone base after last weekend's Belgian race.

As always, Formula1.com will bring you daily reports on the teams’ progress, as well as all the latest pictures from Jerez. Note - all schedules are provisional and subject to change.
