After driving his Formula One car relatively slowly around Wembley Stadium in North London yesterday, as part of a publicity stunt for December's Race of Champions event, David Coulthard was back up to more normal speeds on the wide open windswept spaces of Silverstone, as he took over from Mark Webber for the third and final day of this test session.

Today's programme was intensive to say the least, making up for time lost through the great British weather, red flags and some technical problems over the past two days. On the agenda; assessing the new aero package and some suspension geometry changes, working on British Grand Prix tyre choice and set-up work to suit the Silverstone track.

"It was a busy day, but we got through the majority of our programme," commented Chief Test Engineer Ian Morgan. "We have found solutions for most of the problems we encountered and we have been able to sign-off aero and suspension parts for the next two grands prix."
