Programme: Nick Heidfeld started the morning with an aero test doing back to back checks. However, the team cut this short due to a strong wind and then concentrated on cooling. For Sebastian Vetel the day was not so productive as a couple of off track excursions along with technical problems meant he was not able to do as much testing as the team had hoped. However, like Nick he was able to do some aero testing before the wind got up.

What comes next: This was the final day of the last European test before the start of the Formula 1 season, and over the three days the team covered two thousand kilometres. However, before the first race in Australia the team will test in Bahrain on 22/23/24 February and then on the 27/28 February/1 March. Nick Heidfeld, Robert Kubica and Sebastian Vettel will be driving in Bahrain. The team are looking forward to this as they will be able to see how the car acts in hot weather conditions.
