Sebastien Buemi
Chassis: STR4-02
Best time: 1:21.569
Laps: 145

Much better! After two difficult debut days for the STR4, today's session proved much more useful with the new car running reliably throughout and the problems of the first two days dealt with.

For Buemi, this was his first real drive in the car, having done just a handful of in and out laps yesterday and the team made several adjustments to elements such as pedals to ensure our Swiss driver is comfortable in his new working environment. We also tackled a race simulation and this ended up being two laps short of the full total, as the session was red flagged when another car went off the track, right at the end of the day.

For a rookie driver, Buemi can congratulate himself on having racked up an impressive 145 laps today, and he is under strict orders to get plenty of sleep tonight!
