Michael Schumacher completed his three-day testing session with a GP2 car yesterday at the Jerez circuit, getting within four tenths of the track record.
The seven-time champion had to run again with wet-weather tyres in the morning but was able to use slicks for the remaining part of the session, covering a total of 1151kms over the three days of the test.
Schumacher's best lap of the day was a 1m24.621s, four tenths slower than the record set by Kamui Kobayashi at the Spanish track in October, 2008.
"I could really drive a lot on this last day of testing and it worked out perfectly," Schumacher said.
"I am very happy with the way testing went here: we worked well, times and consistency were well, we could do everything we had scheduled to do. I feel fit, I felt comfortable immediately back in the car - hey, let's go for it!"
