Programme

Lewis wrapped up four days of running at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya, spending the day focusing on tyre development over a series of long runs.

Clocking up an impressive 107 laps -- MP4-26's biggest single-day mileage -- the team worked through a lengthy tyre development programme, eschewing outright lap times in order to more fully understand how the Pirellis behave throughout a race stint.

Test team manager Indy Lall said: "It was very encouraging to log over 100 laps with MP4-26 today -- an impressive conclusion to our four days in Barcelona. We're still working through a very lengthy development programme -- today wasn't about pure performance, it was about conducting a disciplined series of long-runs -- but it's been a positive end to our test here."

Duration of test- Four days (February 18-21)
