Programme

Final day's running for Jenson before the season kicks off in Bahrain in two weeks' time.

The morning's session was affected by rain showers, which compromised running and limited the team's learning of a number of new components. As a result, the morning was spent conducting a number of shorter installation runs to establish set-up.

As the track dried over the lunch hour, Jenson was able to complete a race simulation in the afternoon -- a run that was only mildly disrupted by late red flags.

This also provided the opportunity for the race team to undertake a series of live pitstops, all of which went without problem.

Today's long-run times have established a benchmark for the final day of pre-season running tomorrow, which will be carried out by Lewis.

Driver for day four - Lewis Hamilton
Duration of test - Four days (February 25-28)
