Buemi and Bourdais in action
For several teams this was the last test of the winter, while for Scuderia Toro Rosso’s new car it was both the first and the last test.

Having driven over two race distances yesterday, Sebastien Buemi completed his programme this morning, continuing with development work on the car.

The team then decided to switch drivers, putting Sebastien Bourdais back in the car for the afternoon. This was because the Frenchman had driven on the first two days, when technical problems had seriously restricted his running time. Therefore he was given this opportunity to put in more laps, now that the initial teething troubles on the car had been sorted out.

Buemi completed 62 laps and was ninth fastest with a best lap of 1:21.013 while Bourdais completed just 27 laps and was 11th on a 1:21.629s best.

The team heads back home to Italy with plenty of data to study and work to do, prior to the first race of the season in Melbourne on 29th March.
