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."
