Programme Lewis jumped into the car this morning, picking up where Heikki left off yesterday. He spent the morning concentrating on aero mapping and finding a good balance ahead of the afternoon's long runs. The day was extremely productive and saw the team continue its work with its KERS programme.

Lewis said: "Today's test gave me the first opportunity to drive MP4-24 in warm, dry conditions - and I'm very encouraged by what I felt. The car feels strong, very similar to last year's car, in fact. It doesn't take long to get used to the new buttons in the cockpit [KERS & front-wing flaps] but the real test for everyone now is to understand the slick tyres ahead of the first race in Melbourne next month."

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