Programme: The last test of the year is focused on two tasks: to get more mileage on the new quick shift gearbox and to gain further information about the Bridgestone Potenza tyres.

Today Nick Heidfeld concentrated on set-up work, also testing some new components. Sebastian Vettel started with set-up work too and carried out an aerodynamic test in the afternoon plus a systems check programme including differential and traction control.

What comes next: Tomorrow Robert Kubica will take over from Sebastian to join Nick. The main targets remain testing the gearbox and continuing the set-up work with regard to the new tyres.
