Programme

Another frustrating day: with torrential wind and rain lashing the circuit for the entire day, further meaningful running was ruled out.

More disruptive than today's rain, were the blustery conditions that made running inconclusive. Unable to continue with the day's planned programme, Lewis and the team undertook further systems checks, successfully signing off a large number by the end of the day.

While today's overall times are not representative due to the poor weather (Lewis only completed three complete laps on dry tyres), the team is happy with MP4-25's competitiveness.

Jenson Button takes over driving duties for the next two days, when drier weather is forecast.

Driver for day three - Jenson Button
Duration of test - Four days (February 17-20)
