Chassis programme
Jarno Trulli continued his suspension set-up programme, finding further improvements. He also conducted damper work, applying data collected with the R23 over the winter to the R24. Franck Montagny completed work on a ride programme in the R23.

Tyre programme
Trulli evaluated Melbourne specification tyres during his afternoon race distance. Montagny also conducted tyre development during the afternoon.

"Once again, a very positive day for the team. Jarno had a good day in the R24, completing a problem-free race distance and also reporting consistent engine performance throughout. We also continued to make progress with the car's set-up and overall, we are very pleased to have had a reliable, productive session today."
