BMW-Williams continue positive test at Estoril

BMW-WILLIAMS pair Ralf Schumacher and Jenson Button both completed a positive days testing at the Portuguese circuit Estoril on Thursday.

Button completed 72 laps in the morning with a quickest lap of one minute and 22.612 seconds, before Schumacher took over in the afternoon, completing 15 laps with a quickest time of one minute and 24.023 seconds.

Button insisted the track had improved after his first day at Estoril on Wednesday, but Schumacher was still undecided as to whether he liked the former host of the Portuguese Grand Prix.

"The track has definitely improved and it gets better as it gets more rubber down," said Button. "I like this track and I had a very positive day of testing achieving quite a good mileage.

Schumacher added: "I started my test quite late, just to get a bit familiar with the circuit, also doing a few practice starts."
