In mixed conditions on a newly resurfaced Winton track, Coulthard finished 4th, 13th and finally a resounding 1st in the three sessions today - in the process grabbing a new fastest lap a full 1.1 seconds faster than the previous best.

The cars removed chunks of the new surfacing through the practice sessions - the tarmac causing numerous problems for drivers.

"The surface was interesting. I said to my engineers that the car feels unbelievably good on one lap but on the next one it feels shocking so whatever's happening to the track is playing a massive part. Sometimes there's grip, sometimes there isn't. I do think it's getting better as the day progresses because I didn't find it half as bad in those last few laps so hopefully we've seen the back end of it and we can get on and have a great race."
