Buemi fastest in Spain, Glock tops in Bahrain

Buemi. Fastest. 2008 car. Rain. Different month, same story, as the Swiss set a best of 1:19.660 over 104 laps at Jerez.

Sebastien Vettel was second in the brand new RB5, completing 61 laps. Good news for the team after yesterday's shakedown ended early with gearbox issues. Vettel's best was a 1:22.177.

Williams tester Nico Hulkenberg rounded out the top three with a time of 1:22.443 over 82 laps.
