The AT&T Williams team joined the rest of the grid today for the start of a three day test at Hockenheim. Ahead of the Grand Prix there next weekend, Nico Rosberg opened the team’s schedule of set-up work and will continue in the cockpit tomorrow.
Despite some prolonged showers, Nico lapped the 4.574km track 87 times and set the third fastest time of the day with a 1:16.099.
Dickie Stanford, Test Team Manager:
“Today Nico joined us for day one at Hockenheim during which we concentrated on set-up work in preparation for the race here next weekend. The rain interrupted our progress a few times today, but we still managed to record 87 laps in the dry. Tomorrow, we will finish our programme with Nico before Kazuki arrives for day three on Thursday.”
