Programme: In the morning Jacques Villeneuve, who took over from Nick Heidfeld for the final day, did set-up work, systems checking on the electronics, brake material tests, aero work on new parts and also tyre compound testing for Budapest.

In the afternoon he did tyre casing testing. In the extreme heat he did some longer runs and the engineers were pleased with the outcome, as they obtained answers to several questions.
