Today's final day of testing at the Ricard circuit was interupted by poor weather that saw up to 12mm of standing rain on the track surface, causing extended periods of circuit closure in the afternoon.

It was a frustrating day for young tester Nico Hulkenberg who managed to complete just 35 laps, albeit the circuit had been re-configured into its 5.255km layout to allow the teams to prepare for the Montreal Grand Prix.

At the conclusion of the test, team Technical Director Sam Michael said, "We concluded testing at Ricard today, on a very wet track that was closed for the majority of the afternoon. Even so, we managed to get through some background test items and sign off components for running at Monaco."
