Lewis wrapped up four days of running at Barcelona�s Circuit de Catalunya, spending the day focusing on tyre development over a series of long runs.

Clocking up an impressive 107 laps � MP4-26�s biggest single-day mileage � the team worked through a lengthy tyre development programme, eschewing outright laptimes in order to more fully understand how the Pirellis behave throughout a race stint.

Test team manager Indy Lall said: �It was very encouraging to log over 100 laps with MP4-26 today � an impressive conclusion to our four days in Barcelona. We�re still working through a very lengthy development programme � today wasn�t about pure performance, it was about conducting a disciplined series of long-runs � but it�s been a positive end to our test here.�
