Mika Salo:
"It was good for us to get some laps done in the dry and today was much better than yesterday. We have been running a heavy fuel load and not going for maximum speed, just continuing to learn about the car."

Toyota Motorsport President, Ove Andersson:
"Generally we can leave Barcelona with a much better understanding of the car and what we need to do to improve. I am particularly pleased that we have achieved many laps and that the car has been running reliably. The engine reached the end of its life towards the end of session after completing over 400 kilometres."

Panasonic Toyota Racing has totalled 215 laps or a distance of over 1000 kilometres during this four-day test. Allan McNish will be in action at Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France tomorrow for the final day of a six-day test. A press release will be sent out at the end of the session tomorrow.

Mika and Allan will test next week in Valencia. The session will last from Tuesday 15 January to Friday 18 January with two cars.
