Red Bull Racing completed the final day of the Jerez test today, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel of the RB7. Temperatures were a little cooler than during the previous test days with overcast skies and some rain towards the end of the session.

Continuing its evaluation of the new Pirelli tyres, the team completed some longer runs during the day to test their durability, as well as looking at the best car set-up to suit them. The team also tested some aerodynamic components and development suspension parts.

Ian Morgan Head of Race Engineering commented: "It's been a pretty solid test overall. We've got some good mileage and the car has been reliable. Our main focus during the test has been on understanding the tyres and how to get the best from them and I think we've made some good progress with that."

The next test session starts in Barcelona on Friday, 18 February 2011.
