On the final day of testing at Valencia for Williams and Spyker, German driver Nico Rosberg led the time sheets lapping 0.5s faster than his nearest rival, Adrian Sutil of Spyker. Despite the Heavens opening and disrupting the session, Nico still managed to complete 99 laps of the Spanish circuit, while he worked on set up configurations and assisted test driver Narain Karthikeyan on some aero work. Narain could only muster a 1m14.166s, almost three seconds shy of Rosberg’s lap, but Narain was pleased with progress, as was Test Team Manager Dickie Stanford.
We completed aero work with Nico and concentrated on set-ups with Narain Karthikeyan. This week’s test was productive and we’re now going to move on to Barcelona for our last pre-season test prior to Melbourne. Dickie Stanford.
