Today we finished the programme as planned and so far the test has been very positive. We made some progress on the tryes and Michelin are working very hard. We are trying some developments and I have already seen some improvements in this area.

Our main tasks for today were to evaluate the Silverstone tyres for Michelin and also do some endurance running on the engine. In the afternoon we evaluated traction control and gearbox strategy. <pre> Complete list of times/no. of laps Time Laps
