After yet another damp start to the day, which allowed the team to practice pit stops, this afternoon saw the first really dry track of the test. Both Mark and David continued their Melbourne preparation work: unfortunately, our Aussie driver was sidelined by a minor problem, but he was able to continue after a brief spell in the garage. DC completed his planned programme, which went very well: his only interruption being the red flag brought out when his team-mate stopped on track!

"This has been a very useful three days, despite the weather," commented Chief Test Engineer, Ian Morgan. "It was the first time this season that we have had the full race crew personnel all attending a test to operate as a team and, as such, it was excellent preparation for Melbourne."

Red Bull Racing is back on track, still here in Barcelona, for the final pre-season test, starting next Monday.
