Williams test driver Valtteri Bottas will get his first taste of the 2012 car on Wednesday.

Actually he was the first to drive it at its shake down test and them giving him more time backs up my theory that if it wasn't for cash flow constraints Bottas would be in that car this season. I still say he'll make his debut for them before 2012 is out.

Yeah i think this too. I'm hoping it's Maldonado and not Senna that has a stinker of a season and Bottas will replace him!

I finally found something on the BBC website. It's thrown in with all the other updates for eveything else sports related today. An extremely poor effort. :rolleyes:

Lotus have packed up after 7 laps

I wonder if that'll harm their dark horse status they positioned themselves in after the first test?

I doubt it.They were running a brand new chassis today and found that they had some technical problems with this chassis.
They will have the other one tomorrow, the same one that they ran at Jerez .
