Red Bull tops time sheet in Barcelona

As predicted, rain interrupted play on the final day of the pre-Spanish Grand Prix. At least Mark Webber had the satisfaction of posting the fastest time of the day, which featured a dry run in the morning and another towards the end of the afternoon. Because of the conditions, he never got to try the 2009-spec Bridgestone tyres. But when the track was dry, Mark was able to run some new  aero  components.  "Despite  the  weather  shortening  our  programme today, this has been a good four day test," commented Chief Test Engineer Ian  Morgan. 

"We  were  able  to  acquire  plenty  of  data  from  various  new aerodynamic components and the results were positive. Some of these new developments will find their way onto the car for the Spanish Grand Prix."

The test  team  will  be  back  in  action  at  the  Paul  Ricard  circuit  in  the  South  of France, after the Turkish Grand Prix.
