Testing continued at various European circuits on Thursday.
Jordan wrapped up their three day Silverstone test with Giancarlo Fisichella and Takuma Sato on a damp track Thursday. Fisichella was back in the new EJ12 after yesterday's shunt, and Sato conducted tests in a EJ11 chassis.
Toyota also wrapped up a three day test at Paul Richard Thursday. Scot Allan McNish tested in wet conditions throughout the test, but still said that he and his team walked away with useful data.
McLaren continued it's testing program in Barcelona Thursday with Kimi Raikkonen and Alexander Wurz. Raikkonen got some more seat time in the new MP4/17, while Wurz ran the older MP4/16. Sauber had been in Barcelona with McLaren earlier in the week, but left to prepare for the launch of the new C21 on Friday.
Jaguar spent the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Lurcy Levis conducting straight-line tests on the new R3, trying to sort out its front wing problem, and are expected to join McLaren and Williams in Barcelona on Friday.
