We evaluated different braking systems today from which we have some interesting results. The rest of the session was spent concentrating on performance set-up work and understanding the new tyres. In summary, the team has had a productive week in Abu Dhabi. We're pleased with the progress made with Pirelli, and we've collected plenty of valuable information to work on before returning to the track with the new car next year.

Another full day of testing today. We did a lot of laps! We learnt everything about the tyre we needed to and have a good amount of data check out over the winter. I want to thank all of the team for the effort they have put in over the year. They have been great to work with. I am now looking forward to going home and recharging over the next two months and coming back refreshed in 2011.

The AT&T Williams team have now completed this week's Abu Dhabi young driver and Pirelli test. The team will next be on track in February for the first of four winter test sessions in preparation for the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.
