Today, the two Sebs swapped cars to better evaluate a new front suspension, and both drivers gave positive feedback about this. Rain at the end of the final day provided the opportunity to run on Bridgestone Potenza wet tyres.

"This has been another good test for us, during which we have completed over 2000 kilometres," commented Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies. "This shows we are moving in the right direction in terms of reliability. Our main objective for these three days was to subject the entire team to race weekend conditions and we went through the full programme from preparation to race, including pit stops."

Toro Rosso will be back on track, at Jerez de la Frontera, from 12 to 14 February.
