Circuit: Circuito de Jerez 4.428 kms
Driver: Jaime Alguersuari
Chassis: STR5 - 02
Best time: 1:21.053, 139 laps

This was the fourth and final day of the penultimate test of the winter. In the morning, Jaime did some aero evaluation runs and in the afternoon, the team tackled a race simulation. Over the whole day, the STR5 completed the equivalent of over two race distances. "That is encouraging on the reliability front," said Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies. "Even with the rain interrupting our programme this week, it has been quite a useful test, working on both dry and wet weather basic set-up. However, there is still a fair amount of work to do before the first race in Bahrain and we hope to get a lot more testing miles under our belt, in Barcelona next week."

Despite driving two Grands Prix today, our Spanish driver's winter training programme seems to have paid off, as he seemed in fine form after the session! "These past two days in the car have been successful and it was good that the weather improved, so I could manage to drive in the dry," commented Jaime Alguersuari. "The most important aspect is that the car ran reliably, which was our main target here in Jerez. It puts us in good shape to tackle the final test in Barcelona."
