In the words of the song 'it's the final countdown', Red Bull Racing kicked off one last pre-season test session at the Valencia circuit today. David Coulthard was driving the car that will be used as the T-car in Bahrain.

There were three main elements to today's test programme: general aerodynamic work in the morning, Michelin tyre testing aimed at the Australian Grand Prix in the afternoon and putting more kilometres on the engine specification, which will be used in Bahrain in just over one week's time.

"The day was not entirely trouble free," commented Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan. "But we still managed to put quite a few miles on the engine and we did make some progress."

David continues driving in Valencia tomorrow.
