HOCKENHEIM TEST DAY 3
10 July 2008

Circuit: Hockenheimring 4.574 kms

Driver: Sebastian Vettel
Chassis: STR3-02
Best time: 1:15.556, 106 laps

Scuderia Toro Rosso had to end today's test session early, but it was for the positive reason that, having run pretty much trouble free for the past three days, the engine in the car had reached its mileage limit. German Seb had a full day at the wheel, continuing with preparation work for the German Grand Prix. He evaluated various mechanical and aero set-ups, did long runs to compare the tyre types and also did some work aimed at improving brake performance.

"We had three good test days here in Hockenheim, managing to do a lot of laps," commented team principal Franz Tost. "I think we have found quite a good set-up and have a good understanding of the differences between the Bridgestone prime and option choices we will have next week. This means we should have a good baseline from which to start the test session next Friday morning here in Hockenheim and we are looking forward to the German Grand Prix."
