Report from day 4 of winter testing, at Valencia, Spain.

Chassis programme
Chassis work was limited to wet set-up work and acclimatization for Montagny's first F1 run in wet conditions.

Tyre programme
Montagny tested a variety of compounds and constructions. Both areas of development showed promising results.

Other Notes
Weather conditions turned colder today, bringing particularly low grip conditions when combined with the artificially wet track surface. Montagny's 95 laps brought his personal mileage for the week to 1484 km, and the team's to 2552km.

Pat Symonds, Executive Director of Engineering:

"This was Franck's first time in the car in the wet and, combined with very low grip conditions, this made the day quite a challenge for him. However, he performed very well, running quickly and giving good feedback. We have had a useful week, and learned a lot about the tyres and our development work for next year's car."
