Car: RB4 02
Time: 1:23.737, Laps: 120

Fastest Lap: L. Hamilton 1:22.967
Circuit length: 5.793 km

1848 kilometres 100% reliability

After Mark Webber drove on the previous two days, it was David Coulthard's turn to get behind the wheel for the final day of the penultimate test of the season. On the agenda was pre-Italian GP race preparation, with DC concentrating on testing mechanical set-ups specifically for Monza, finding a reasonable balance on the RB4. Some performance related work was carried out in the afternoon, when the track conditions were at their hottest and slowest.

"This three day test has produced positive results for us," commented Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan. "We can be particularly satisfied that the car ran one hundred percent reliably on track throughout and we completed over eighteen hundred kilometres, the most of any team here, with today being particularly busy."
