88 laps

Sebastien Buemi, test and reserve driver for our sister team, Red Bull Racing was behind the wheel of the STR3 as part of an audition for a race seat with us in 2009. Obviously, Sebastian Vettel's historic maiden victory for him and the team in Monza last Sunday raises the standard by a long way!

After a delayed start, because of a mechanical problem on the car, this final test of the season saw Buemi carry out some aero configuration work and general set-up, completing one long run at the end of the day. The Swiss driver made no mistakes and provided good feedback throughout the day. "I'm quite happy, it was a very good first day and I really want to thank Red Bull for the opportunity to test the car," commented Sebastien after the test.

Tomorrow, driving duties will be carried out by the Japanese driver, Takuma Sato.
