This was the final day of Formula 1 testing for 2009 and once again, Daniel Ricciardo was at the wheel of the RB5 in Jerez, where the past three days were restricted to drivers having competed in fewer than three Grands Prix.

Following on from the past two days, the team again worked on aerodynamic testing aimed at 2010, getting through its entire programme, even though track time was shortened by some light rain in the middle of the day. Ricciardo's performance was impressive and in fact, his best lap today was the fastest recorded at the Jerez circuit this year.

"These last three days have been an incredible experience for me," said Daniel, as he reluctantly stepped out of the cockpit. "I would like to thank Red Bull for giving me this great opportunity, which has made me even more determined to make it into Formula 1 one day. I know it was just a test, but seeing my name on the top of today's timesheet was really something special."
