6 February 2013 – Nico Hülkenberg enjoyed more trouble-free running in Sauber's new C32 chassis on Wednesday, racking up a total of 438 kilometres (272 miles) at the Jerez circuit.
The German, who finished fifth on the timesheets with his best effort of 1:19.502, spent the majority of the day focusing on comparisons with Pirelli's tyre compounds.
"For the second day in a row it was pretty successful," Hülkenberg commented. "We went through a lot of items and did a comparison of the compounds - Soft, Medium and Hard - which was quite interesting. "Otherwise I continued my familiarisation with the car and I did some long runs. Like yesterday, it was a positive day."
Hülkenberg will now make way for Mexican team-mate Esteban Gutiérrez, who is set to complete the remaining two days of the opening pre-season test for Sauber.
