Toyota wrap up Barcelona test

Jarno Trulli just edged out teammate Ralf Schumacher on the final day of testing at Barcelona in Spain on Friday, as Toyota had the circuit entirely to themselves.
The Japanese car manufacturer had started a day later than the other teams, and spent their final outing continuing to evaluate the new Bridgestone tyres and work on set-up experiments.
Trulli was just four hundredths of a second faster than Schumacher, both men beating the fastest time of the week, set by Ferrari's Luca Badoer yesterday.
"The track temperature this morning was too cold to really do any useful running so we had to wait a bit for it to warm up," said Trulli. "Once that happened we were able to resume where we left off yesterday and continue with our tyre testing programme.
"I had a positive impression of the new tyres and everything seemed to go well. We had a good and learned quite a bit."
Testing resumes at Jerez in Spain next week.
