Yet another bout of overnight and early morning rain meant that the final day of the test was another short one in terms of useful track time. David (Coulthard) only ran in the afternoon, spending all his time on a race fuel load, continuing to work on evaluating aero updates, carrying out tyre comparisons and looking at set-up options for this track.

"This has been a productive test," commented Chief Test Engineer Ian Morgan. "We have achieved high mileages with a number of components that had durability problems in recent races so we seem to have made progress in that area. The aero work has produced some encouraging results and, despite the rain, we managed to get through all our usual pre-race work in preparation for next week's Italian Grand Prix."
