Glock concludes Toyota's programme
Toyota today completed its preparations for the new season at the last day of this week's test in Barcelona.

Fog delayed proceedings for an hour this morning but after that the sun came out at the Catalan circuit. Timo Glock reaped the benefits, putting in yet another full session of work on set-up. He finished third fastest overall with 128 laps, pushing the team's total for the week past the 500 mark.

On his very last lap he stopped on the circuit with a mechanical problem that the team will now investigate.

This ends Toyota's winter programme. The team's next action will be in Melbourne for the first Grand Prix of 2009 on March 29.

Timo Glock
"This was another useful day to round off our good winter of testing. We did more work on set-up and long runs and everything went well until the very last lap! Still, overall the car feels strong and we seem to have good pace so we can look forward to Australia. Of course we'll only see the real results on Saturday in Melbourne but everyone at Toyota can be happy with our work so far. We've made fine progress so roll on the first race."

Gerd Pfeiffer, Test Team Manager
"After the fog cleared this morning, we had another good day's work to finish our winter programme. Timo made the most of the conditions, putting in a lot more laps of set-up on the TF109. He stopped on his last lap so we will now have to investigate the cause. But overall, given this year's in-season testing ban it was important that we had a positive winter and that's exactly what has happened. We have made the most of the limited time, the TF109 has been quick and consistent so we can head to Melbourne with confidence."
