2011 F1 testing
Felipe Massa set the fastest time on the final day in Barcelona.
The Ferrari driver lapped the Circuit de Catalunya in 1’22.625 – the quickest time seen during the four-day test.
Lewis Hamilton managed a productive day in the McLaren. He completed over 100 laps in the MP4-26 which has struggled to accumulate mileage over the course of its first two tests.
However the day came to an early end for Jarno Trulli after a problem with Lotus caused a crash at Campsa a little over an hour into the test.
With the car needing extensive repairs he was done for the day.
Nick Heidfeld had a quiet start to the morning due to a problem with the Renault’s KERS. Pastor Maldonado’s Williams also had a KERS glitch relating to the water pump.
The Williams driver was later able to run a long stint but his car came to a halt at the end of it, bringing out the red flags.
Another stoppage came close to the end of the session as Michael Schumacher hit trouble in the Mercedes.
The session was re-started with 11 minute to go giving a handful of drivers the chance to complete a few extra laps.
