Programme

Heikki took over driving duties from Lewis and immediately resumed the week-long programme of introducing and evaluating new aerodynamics mods for MP4-24. In perfect weather conditions, the test proved extremely productive, both in terms of evaluating the laptime potential of the new components and their effectiveness over the course of a simulated race stint. The team's pre-season preparations conclude tomorrow when Heikki will put the final pieces through their paces.

Driver for day four Heikki

Duration of test Four days (March 16-19)
