• The morning programme focused on tyre evaluations in the wet conditions, mainly on intermediate tyres
• Lewis also completed race weekend procedure practice when useful running was not possible
• This afternoon, Lewis completed a wet to dry race simulation on intermediate and then medium compound tyres
• Lewis has now completed 2040 km over five days of winter testing, equivalent to nearly seven Grand Prix distances.

Nico Rosberg will drive for the second day of the test tomorrow.

The track started out really wet this morning but thankfully the conditions dried out later on and we were able to complete some proper running. It felt good to work through the race simulation this afternoon; both to get myself back in practice and to put valuable miles on the car.

All the guys have done a fantastic job both here and at the factory. I’m really happy that we’re making progress together and very much enjoying working with everyone. The last couple of days of pre-season testing are always really exciting when everyone starts to add their upgrades so I’m looking forward to the weekend.
