Kovalainen quickest on final day of testing

On the final day of testing, Heikki Kovalainen topped the timesheets. His MP4-22 caused some interest, running with a new type of wheel cover.

The weather was calmer than it had been on Wednesday ensuring that teams had an easier time with their aerodynamic work. Red Bull continued to show good pace with David Coulthard finishing with the second fastest lap of the day, although he was over half a second behind Kovalainen.

Honda continued their poor performances, finishing slowest out of all the manufacturer teams.

The test session saw two red flags the first was waved for Sebastien Vettel s Toro Rosso when it stopped on-track between Turns 4 and 5. The second red flag was waved when Nico Hulkenberg s Williams stopped on track at Turn 7.
