Today's test programme was similar to yesterday's with German Seb at the wheel of a car with the 2008 common ECU and French Seb driving a car with 2007 electronics, but with traction control and engine braking switched off.

In the afternoon, they reverted to their original chassis and Bourdais' afternoon programme also included some aero testing while both men continued to evaluate new brake materials.
