SILVERSTONE TEST DAY 3

Circuit: Silverstone Circuit 3.194 miles (we are in England!)

Driver: Sebastien Bourdais
Chassis STR3-02
Best time: 1:21.432
76 laps
Pos.9th

Sebastien took over from Sebastian for the final day of this three day test session. The focus switched mainly to preparation for the forthcoming British Grand Prix which takes place here in a week's time. Seb worked on a comparison on the Bridgestone tyres that will be on offer here for race weekend, as well as set-up work and evaluation of brake materials. Apart from losing some time to an oil leak in the morning and an exhaust problem, the day went reasonably smoothly. The test team completed most of its programme and leaves Silverstone with plenty of useful data to use as a baseline for the start of British Grand Prix practice.
