Ferrari, BMW and Toyota bring eight days of testing at Bahrain to an end today. The last few days have seen some of the teams hit by reliability problems.

But the other defining feature of this test has been how close the laptimes are between the trio. Will today see one of them suddenly pull a hot lap out of the bag?

Today?s testing line-up

Ferrari – Felipe Massa
Toyota – Timo Glock
BMW – Nick Heidfeld

Here are the best times set by each of the teams over the last three days:

Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Ferrari 1:32.804 (KR) 1:32.102 (KR) 1:32.917 (FM)
