This time it was Jenson Button who led the led the way, his 1m18.871s from this morning proving 0.7 seconds quicker than the time his team-mate Lewis Hamilton set to top the previous week's table.

Rain was an even greater factor at this test, with Saturday the only truly dry day. The top three times of the week were all set today, with Robert Kubica (Renault) and Kamui Kobayashi (Sauber) second and third.

Mark Webber was the only leading contender to set his best time of the week on a different day, producing a 1m19.299s on Friday to take fourth overall for the week.

Nico Hulkenberg had the busiest test, completing a mammoth 275 laps for Williams. Close behind were Ferrari's Fernando Alonso on 269 and Toro Rosso's Jaime Alguersuari on 259.
