The sand in the Red Bull Racing egg timer ran its course today, signalling the end of what Technical Director, Mark Smith, described as "a very positive and encouraging week of testing."

Once again today, David Coulthard was our sole representative on track and, once again, he had to contend with strong winds. The day's programme was pretty similar to yesterday's, concentrating on chassis set-up, control systems and tyres.

"We have made progress throughout the week," continued Smith, "and we now have a much better understanding of the car."

"Next week, we move to Barcelona for the final test before the opening round of the season and so we will be concentrating on race distance simulations and race preparation, including pit-stops, complete with refuelling."

The Barcelona test Mark refers to runs from 21st to 24th February and will feature all three Red Bull Racing drivers.

Car: RB2-02
Driver: David Coulthard
Laps: 33
Best time: 1:11.070
