Red Bull Racing rounded out its three-day test at Italy’s Mugello circuit this afternoon with Sebastian Vettel completing 106 trouble-free laps on the third and final day.
Over the course of a productive session, the team managed to get through its full planned programme, which, like yesterday, focused largely on aerodynamic testing. Having amassed a vast amount of data over the past three days, the team will now return to its Milton Keynes base where analysis can take place in the run-up to next week’s Spanish Grand Prix.
The world champion commented that he had enjoyed his time at the Tuscan track and that the test had been worthwhile.
“It’s been a useful couple of days and I’ve enjoyed the track a lot,” said Sebastian. “As usual we now have a lot of data to get through and that will take some time. We tried a few things and the results look encouraging; it’s always difficult to tell whether we improved and by how much, but we got some good laps and some good information.”
