Programme: Heikki joined the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes test team for the final session of the intensive four day test. Rain began to fall minutes before the start of morning running and continued for much of the day. A short let-up after lunch saw Heikki take to the track for 40 minutes before a thunderstorm arrived at the Circuit de Catalunya, followed by hailstones. When this cleared, the team carried on testing between the showers with very little running in the dry.
