Given that the teams present at this test are running a very wide range ofdifferent aerodynamic configurations, in preparation for the 2009 rules, it doesn'tmean too much, but nevertheless, Sebastian Vettel's first session as an officialRed Bull Racing driver got off to a good start, as he posted today's fastest time.In fact, the top four times all came courtesy of a chassis designed by Red BullTechnology, as sister team Toro Rosso, set the next three best times.

Once  Sebastian  was  settled  in,  he  carried  on  with  the  programme  begunyesterday  by  Sebastien  Loeb,  which  centred  mainly  on  tyre  data  acquisition,running the softer of the two types of Bridgestone slicks available here. A brakeproblem meant some track time was lost in the morning, but the programme wasback on schedule come the end of the day.

Vettel drives again tomorrow, for the final day of this test session.
