Sebastian Vettel was at the wheel of the RB5 today, as the team completed its final day of testing ahead of the 2009 season-opener, taking place in Australia later this month.

Foggy weather prevented teams from running for the first one and a half hours of the testing session, but then conditions brightened and were sunny and warm for the rest of the day.

The team tested some development parts, but mainly concentrated on final set-up work ahead of the first race in Melbourne. "Overall this week's test has gone pretty well," commented Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering. "We've been pleased with our reliability throughout the winter, but looking to performance it's hard to know where we stand until we get out on the track in Melbourne. We're looking forward to it and can't wait to start racing again."

The first race of the season is in Melbourne on Sunday 29 March, 2009.
