Malaysian driver Fairuz Fauzy returned to Formula One action today in Santa Pod to carry out a day of testing for the Spyker team.
Fauzy, who had not driven the Spyker since May, assisted the team with their aero development programme.
The team plan to introduce a heavily revised car in the next race in Turkey.
"It was great to be back in the F1 car," said Fauzy. "We concentrated on aero development and control systems and had a very productive day.
"Santa Pod is not really a complete track, but it's quite bumpy, fun and challenging to drive. We didn't have any problems and it was nice to be able to get some more mileage in a Formula One car. I'm looking forward to getting some more time later in the season."
