Michael Schumacher emerged from the first day of his GP2 test with no qualms about the neck injury that prevented his return to F1 five months ago.
"This (test) is not about whether the neck holds. About that I have no doubts," the German is quoted as saying from the Jerez circuit by Germany's Bild newspaper.
However, reportedly also in Spain for the test is a doctor of the specialist Bad-Nauheim sports clinic, as well as Schumacher's new Mercedes GP race engineer Andy Shovlin, who worked alongside Jenson Button in 2009.
More rain is forecast for Jerez on Wednesday, when the private three day test continues.
