Problems for everyone at Barcelona


All three drivers on duty at Barcelona today - the first of a four-day test - had their share of drama.

Malaysia and Bahrain Grands Prix Winner suffered a rear wing failure at La Caixa, which caused the R25 to spin off track like a whirling dervish, thankfully the Spaniard managed to keep the car away from the barriers.

Earlier in the day, teammate Giancarlo Fisichella, who suffered an engine failure in Bahrain, span off following a technical failure. Unable to get the car going again, the hapless Italian was towed back to the pits, where his crew worked on his car for the remainder of the day.

There were problems for Ferrari's Marc Gene too, the Spaniard suffering an undisclosed technical problem as he carried out tyre testing for Bridgestone. The good news for the Italian team is that Marc was driving the F2004M and not the F2005.
