Programme:
Today's programme started with the controlled on-track draining of the tank to assess the effectiveness of MP4-24's fuel collection. For the remainder of the day, the team worked on tuning the car's set-up before the session ended prematurely at 15:30 when a sudden gust of wind swept Lewis off the track and into a tyre barrier. While the impact was only a mere 44km/h, the car went in rearwards, doing enough to dislodge the rear wing and lightly damage the car's rear-end. With insufficient time to effect repairs before the end of the session, the team opted to finish early in order to commence preparations for next week's four-day Barcelona test.

Total Laps Run at Test: 398 (94/91/85/70/58)
Total Kilometres covered at Test: 1761 (416/402/376/310/257))

Next Test: Barcelona March 9-12
