The second day of the Young Drivers Test at Silverstone is coming to an end.  The current order at 16:00 is listed below.  Today Daniel Ricciardo is pulling double duty for Toro Rosso and Red Bull Racing.  I suppose it can be considered his unofficial audition for the part of supporting cast member to Sebastian Vettel at Red Bull.  The young Aussie with the permanent smile on his face started the day at the wheel of his STR and switched gears to the big sister RBR in the afternoon.  It was a bit of a rocky start for him as he parked the RB9 in the gravel.  At one point, Ricciardo occupied the top two spots on the timing chart before his times were split by Carlos Sainz Jr. testing for Toro Rosso.
