The penultimate test of 2007 ended today at the Circuit de Catalunya and the past three days can generally be described as positive for Red Bull Racing. David Coulthard drove on all three days and this last one saw him continue to work on aero and mechanical set-up, based on developments aimed at the 2008 regulations. A trouble free final day saw him get through everything on his programme.

With around two hours being lost to red flags caused by various teams and drivers, it was difficult to squeeze in a full workload. Nevertheless, Robert Doornbos, who took over from Karun Chandhok, got through the majority of his programme which focussed on the 2008 common ECU and getting the Renault engine and Red Bull Racing chassis systems working in harmony with it.

It's back to Spain for the test team, with a four day session at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, starting on 4 December.
