Today's session was the proverbial Curate's Egg (good in parts) for Red Bull Racing. The morning went well on this final day of testing prior to the season, with David running through an aero programme and doing general set-up work. The emphasis then switched to tyre testing combined with longer runs.

"Unfortunately, on the first of these runs, the car suffered an engine problem and David actually spun on his own oil," explained Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan.

"We therefore lost some time in the afternoon, fitting a new engine, but after that we had a productive time. The car's actual pace seems pretty good, as David put in some quick laps late in the day, even though by then it was very windy."

Car: RB2-01
Driver: David Coulthard
Laps: 68
Best time: 1:10.401
