There was a definite feeling of relief in the Red Bull Racing garage on Friday night, as the final test session of 2006 came to a close, because when Tonio Liuzzi cut the engine as he came into pit lane, it signaled the end of a working life for the less than loved RB2 car!

Actually, over the past three days, RB2 behaved faultlessly, allowing Ammermueller and Liuzzi to work through their entire programme, which again centred mainly on an evaluation of the new Bridgestone Potenza tyres. Almost perfect winter testing conditions - cold and dry - meant engineers had an easier task analyzing data than they did a week ago when rain was a frequent visitor.

"Apart from the tyre work, we also carried out some testing aimed at development of next year's car, in the areas of suspension geometry and gearbox development," said Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan. "Now we are all looking forward to getting our hands on the new car in the new year."
