Arrows' new A22 chassis failed to live up to expectations on its debut at Silverstone on Friday, after Jos Verstappen completed just one lap.
Leafield-based Arrows debuted the new car at the Northamptonshire circuit on Friday morning but the AMT-powered car caught alight after one installation lap.
Engineers put out the fire at the back of the car, but the new car has remained in the pits. Team boss Tom Walkinshaw attended the private test, in which the car took to the track in all-black livery.
Dutchman Verstappen's teammate Enrique Bernoldi, who was named as a full driver on Wednesday, is on duty at Barcelona again today where he will test last year's A21 with 2001 components.
