Circuit: Circuito de Jerez 4.428 kms
Driver: Jaime Alguersuari
Chassis: STR5 - 02
Best time: 1:24.072, 98 laps

After a slightly damp track in the morning, the weather improved for the final day of this test session, allowing Jaime Alguersuari to get some dry running under his belt in the new STR5. On the technical agenda today, race set-up work, using the Soft and Medium Bridgestone tyres and a back-to-back comparison of some aero parts.

"I'm pleased with how these two days of testing went," said Jaime Alguersuari. "It was very useful to drive the car with different fuel loads and in different track conditions, in the dry, in the wet and "intermediate" conditions. Overall, it has been a positive week for me and also for the team."

"With another 98 laps completed today, we got through all our programme this week and have acquired plenty of data to study in preparation for the next test," commented Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies. "The past four days have been satisfactory, as the car never once stopped out on track and the two drivers didn't make any mistakes, which always helps!"

The team now stays in Jerez to prepare the car for the next test session, which runs from 17 to 20 February at this same circuit. Buemi drives the first two days, followed by Alguersuari for the last two.
