With new faces Townsend Bell and Christian Klien finishing their first tests for Jaguar Racing, regular team drivers Mark Webber and Justin Wilson rounded off proceedings on the final day of testing at Valencia on Thursday.

The three-day test focused on development work for the forthcoming R5 and Michelin tyres - the first step of a busy and challenging winter programme.

On his first time back in the cockpit since Suzuka, Wilson made the most of his time on the circuit completing a substantial 127 laps -- more than any other driver on the day. In doing so, the young Yorkshireman set the fifth quickest time of the day, lapping in 1m10.443s.

Although impressive in its own right, Wilson's time was still .419s shy of David Coulthard's new Valencia lap record, set in the new McLaren MP4-19.

Webber managed significantly fewer laps than his team-mate, setting a quickest mark of 1m12.128s from his 75 laps.
