Programme
A continuation of yesterday's programme, focusing on car set-up and putting miles on MP4-24's KERS device. Fine weather meant Heikki was able to rack up 110 laps throughout the day, including several longer runs as both the team and driver became more comfortable with the car's balance. Without a high-downforce 2009-spec rear wing, the team opted to run with a modified 2008 rear wing. The KERS programme ran smoothly throughout the day.

Driver for day three Lewis Hamilton
Duration of test Four days (Feb 10-13)
