McLaren driver fastest of all 23 drivers in Barcelona's final pre season F1 test
1 March 2010

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton ended Formula One's final pre season test in Barcelona as fastest of all 23 drivers who took part.

In the combined times taken from all four days of the test, Hamilton was fastest from Red Bull's Mark Webber and Ferrari's Felipe Massa. Hamilton's team mate Jenson Button was 15th overall, while Mercedes' Michael Schumacher was ninth.

Only two of F1's four new teams took part in the test, Virgin and Lotus, after the continued absence of both Campos and US F1. Campos is expected to make the grid for Bahrain in 13 days time, although US F1's future looks less secure. Stefan GP is ready to take its place on the grid should the American team fail to make it.

Sorry Autocar, but according to your own times it was MASSA who was third quickest. Fernado "Estafador" Alonso was sixth.

Might be the only time too!, no, really, just look at the times, Schumacher could be right saying at least eight teams are in with a chance of the titles.
