Next stop Melbourne!

Apart from a shakedown on 3 March at Fiorano for the cars that will be raced in Australia, today saw winter testing come to a close. Sebastien put in 98 laps, meaning that over the three days, the two Sebs completed around 1500 kilometres: an impressive statistic, given that only one car was used.

"The reason for the high mileage is that we did around a race distance each day and today, we again concentrated on race weekend procedures, which will be new to Sebastien when we get to Melbourne," explained Chief Engineer Laurent Mekies. "Also on today's agenda was fine tuning of the gearbox control systems."
