Sunshine and tyre testing for Franck Montagny at Paul Ricard, with promising results to round off the week.

Tyre programme
Montagny evaluated dry tyres for Monaco and Montreal throughout the day, concluding the Monaco programme and doing long runs for Montreal. Both programmes gave positive results.

Other Notes
The circuit was once again used in Monaco configuration, and the team tested elements of the high-downforce Monaco package to be raced next weekend.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"An excellent final day for the team, and it was pleasing to see Franck complete the highest mileage of any runner. We have continued to make progress with the car and we are very happy with how it is handling. The tyre compounds also hold promise, and overall, we have had a very product week."
