A full day of tyre testing for Franck Montagny at Le Castellet to round off the week.

Tyre programme
Montagny's entire programme was devoted to tyre testing.

Initially, he conducted front construction tests, reviewing data from the Malaysian Grand Prix ahead of the forthcoming race in Bahrain.

He continued with construction work, testing new products for Imola which brought very reasonable improvements. The Frenchman also began looking at the compound choices for Imola, and in both cases found good improvements with brand new products.

Pat Symonds, Executive Director of Engineering

"A very pleasing conclusion to the week. The story of the day was all about tyres, and we were very pleased with the progress Franck made. The new constructions we tested were a step in the right direction for us, and the compounds showed improvements in lap time and consistency."
