Tyre programme
Fernando Alonso continued the tyre test from yesterday, which involved doing short runs to evaluate performance.

Chassis programme
Both Alonso and Franck Montagny concentrated on brake work in the morning, which resulted in gathering some interesting and useful data that will provide the Team with a good direction for future tests.

Franck Montagny worked on set-up and dampers programme which continues on from the previous tests in Valencia and Barcelona.

Other Notes
It stayed dry all day which meant Fernando and Franck managed to tackle the circuit for longer runs which helped the team gather extra data. The pre-Christmas testing has now come to a conclusion with the Team accumulating 6,403 km since the first day of testing in Valencia on 25th November.

The team are very happy with the concluding day in Jerez, as the day was trouble-free with no problems with either of the cars. We are extremely pleased with the 3 weeks since the beginning of winter testing and we now look forward to getting back on track in January.

Franck Montagny
