Swansong for the RB3

By on

This week's first test of 2008 marks the swansong for our 2007 car, the RB3, and for the morning at least, the weather was certainly the sort much loved by swans and other water birds. Overnight rain continued into the morning, giving David his first chance of driving in the wet without any traction control and engine braking.

Conditions were changeable throughout the day as the track took a while to dry fully and the technical programme centred mainly on the continuation of validating engine and gearbox operation with this year's common Electronic Control Unit.

Mark Webber takes over in the cockpit tomorrow, before DC gets to debut our new 2008 car, (RB4) on Wednesday.
