Sebastian Vettel was at the wheel of Red Bull Racing's RB6 today for the final day of the current Jerez test. It was his second day of testing, as Mark Webber had driven on days one and two.

The team's plan was to focus on set-up work and aero testing, although the weather once again played a part and damp conditions in the morning meant Sebastian began the day on intermediate tyres.

Conditions dried by lunchtime, but a fuel pump failure in the afternoon cost the team around three hours of dry running time. Sebastian ended the day with a final long run on dry tyres.

At the end of the RB6's first test, Ian Morgan, Head of Race Engineering said: "It's been a productive first week with the RB6, despite the weather and lack of dry conditions. We're pleased with the car overall, it's showing a lot of promise."

The next test will take place at the Jerez Circuit, starting on Wednesday 17 February.
