Unfortunately we still don't have the lap by lap times :(

The times from Ferrari are impressive and it seems that they have sorted some of their problems. The gap between Massa and Raikkonen is probably due to fuel and/or different track conditions. Both have managed to cover many laps. Massa did the most with 155 laps!

Williams seem to have hit some trouble with Rosberg only managing 10 laps!

One has to wonder what is happening at Honda. They appear to be at the bottom end of the midfield. Are they sandbagging or do they have a poor car ?

In the times posted above for Super Aguri, it lists the car as a Super Aguri Honda RA107 (which is the same name as the Honda car)
This isn't correct as the Super Aguri team haven't yet named their 2007 challenger. The car they test with is officially called the SAF1 Team Interim Car.

This was the final official test in Europe prior to the 1st race of the season in Melbourne. Most teams head to Bahrain for 2 3-day test sessions (22-24 Feb) and (27 Feb - 1 Mar). The Williams team remains in Europe and will test next week in Valencia.

Toro Rosso was the lastest team to test their 2007 car, the STR2. The team managed to shakedown the car on the final day of testing at Barcelona.

Super Aguri are the only team yet to 'officially' test their 2007 car although it is widely expected to be the same as the Interim Car they are currrently running.
