For the third and final day of the first winter test the task list was basically the same as for the two previous days. Again, development work with the 2008 standard ECU was on the agenda, as well as testing new mechanical parts in preparation for the 2008 season. While the team lost some track time in Barcelona due to teething problems with new components, the positive conclusion is that it learned a lot in Spain.
