After a day off to have treatment for a trapped nerve, David was back in action and was evidently fit and well, as he was second quickest today. Today was his turn to try the latest aerodynamic updates on RB4 that Mark ran for the first time yesterday. As for the Australian he concentrated on fine tuning the package and set-up work prior to Melbourne.

"This was the last test session until after the Bahrain GP and in many ways, for those of us on the test team, it feels like the end of a season that has run pretty much non-stop since the end of last year," commented Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan. "The result of all the hard work is that the cars go to Australia having completed a high mileage, showing good reliability and what seems like an encouraging level of performance. Now it's a case of getting to Melbourne to see where we really are."
