A LOT OF TECHNOLOGY!

Given that the teams present at this test are running a very wide range of different aerodynamic configurations, in preparation for the 2009 rules, it doesn't mean too much, but nevertheless, Sebastian Vettel's first session as an official Red Bull Racing driver got off to a good start, as he posted today's fastest time. In fact, the top four times all came courtesy of a chassis designed by Red Bull Technology, as sister team Toro Rosso, set the next three best times.

Once Sebastian was settled in, he carried on with the programme begun yesterday by Sebastien Loeb, which centred mainly on tyre data acquisition, running the softer of the two types of Bridgestone slicks available here. A brake problem meant some track time was lost in the morning, but the programme was back on schedule come the end of the day.

Vettel drives again tomorrow, for the final day of this test session.
