Formula 1: Schumacher fastest in Jerez test

Michael Schumacher led the way in the second morning of Formula 1’s pre-season test at Jerez, while Mark Webber was the best of the runners in 2012 machinery, according to autosport.com. It was the Australian who set the early pace as he dropped down to a 1m19.184s, at the time putting him 1.1s clear of the field. While all eyes were therefore on Webber and the RB8 – the car with which Red Bull is bidding to defend its 2011 crowns – it was Schuma­cher who stole the limelight with a series of blistering laps. A three-lap burst allowed the German to get down to a 1m18.622s, which he duly lowered on his next run, dropping to a 1m18.561s.
