"Our best test of the year," is how Chief Test Engineer Ian Morgan summed up this three day session, which served a variety of purposes. It was the final test at the Catalunya Circuit prior to the Spanish Grand Prix to be held here next month and as such, the team worked on tyre choice and car set-up for this event.

"We also evaluated some new aerodynamic parts with pleasing results and these should bring an improvement for the next race in Imola," added Morgan. "It was also good for both drivers to get plenty of time to work on set-up and find a car balance that they are happy with."

Although both drivers lost some track time on Tuesday, the last two days saw them put in a lot of laps and get through the planned test programme.

Testing resumes the week after the San Marino Grand Prix, at "sunny" Silverstone.
