Michael Schumacher set the fastest pace on the second day of Formula One preseason testing Wednesday at the Jerez Circuit track. The German driver, entering the final year of his F1 comeback, used Mercedes' car from last year to clock an early morning lap of 1 minute, 18.561 seconds. Schumacher says ''it was a good and productive test, full of lots of useful information, and I am now looking forward to driving our 2012 car for the first time at the next test.'' While Schumacher used last year's car to try out the new Pirelli tires, Mark Webber came in second at 0.623 seconds behind driving Red Bull's new 2012 vehicle. Daniel Ricciardo of Toro Rosso was third, while Kimi Raikkonen was fifth after having the fastest lap on day one.
