    Having had a day’s running each on Tuesday and Wednesday, today Stefano Coletti and Kevin Ceccon had a further half day in the cockpit of the TR6.

    Laurent Mekies (Chief Engineer): "Another busy day to end this test, which has been very productive for us. We achieved a very high number of kilometres which is especially useful as it validates the reliability of some elements we were testing with a view to the 2012 car. That was one part of the programme, while on the other hand, we also used this opportunity to prepare for the final round of the championship in Brazil, in just over a week’s time. Time spent evaluating Pirelli’s development tyres for next year has also been very productive. Both drivers worked well, not making any mistakes and delivering a positive contribution to the team."

    From Abu Dhabi, the cars and equipment, along with some team members will now travel directly to Sao Paolo to begin work for the season finale at the Interlagos circuit.
