Driver: Sebastien Buemi
Car: RB4 01
Time: 1: 34.064, Laps: 16
Fastest Lap: J. Trulli 1: 31.360
Circuit length: 5.255 km

It was 18 degrees and sunny in Montreal, Canada today, but at the Le Castellet Circuit where teams switched to running to a circuit supposedly reproducing elements of the track that hosts the Canadian GP in three weeks time, it rained heavily. So heavily in fact that Red Bull Racing cut short its testing, as did the majority of other teams. Our test and reserve driver, Sebastien Buemi takes up the story: "it was very frustrating, because I have not had much mileage in a Formula 1 car so far this year, so I was looking forward to today. We got a couple of runs in dry conditions, but then as I was meant to be doing a long run test, the rain got much heavier and we decided the most sensible option was to stop running."
