Fastest Lap: L. Hamilton   1:19.170

Circuit length: 5.141 km

Silverstone might well be the nearest circuit to the Red Bull Racing facility in Milton  Keynes, but there was no "home team" advantage for us on the last day of the test.

David Coulthard took over from Mark Webber in the cockpit of RB4 for what can only be described as a frustrating day. Tyre comparison in preparation for next weekend's British Grand Prix was on the agenda, but on his first run on new tyres, Timo Glock's Toyota decided to attack David as they went through Stowe. The German driver immediately apologized, but didn't come round to the   garage   to   help   with   repairs.   After   lunch   a   gearbox   issue   delayed proceedings allowing only limited laps.

"Over the previous two days, when Mark was driving, the team had come upwith  some  interesting  results  and  I  was  keen  to  validate  them  today,"  saidCoulthard. "Unfortunately I did not get much running and as the high-speednature of Silverstone means it helps to get your eye in, I will be slightly on theback foot going into practice for the British Grand Prix. But I think that, as ateam, we are strong enough to deal with that, so I hope to have a good homerace."
