Testing, Barcleona - 12 March 2011

Just five drivers headed out onto a very wet Barcelona track today, for the final day of pre-season testing.

Times were well off the pace today, due in part to the almost monsoon conditions, and only three drivers actually set times, with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso venturing out only for a handful of installation laps.

The fastest time of the day was set again by Mercedes' Nico Rosberg, who despite completing the most laps of anybody, still only recorded thirty or so laps, just over half a race distance.

Second quickest was Pastor Maldonado for Williams, with his best time about half a second slower than Rosbergs.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton was third today, although he seemed happy and was upbeat about his team's chances when speaking to the press, saying "I'm positive. I love racing, I'm looking forward to racing".
