Hamilton ends Valencia test on top

Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest time of the week in testing at the Valencia circuit on the final day of work at the Spanish track.

Hamilton returned to testing action for the first time since he crashed last week at Valencia, working with the new MP4-22.

The Briton finished with a best time of 1:11.119, the best time of the week by over a tenth of second.

The McLaren driver was also the busiest man on track alongside Finn Kimi Raikkonen, both covering 112 laps. The Ferrari driver finished over sixth tenths behind Hamilton.

Hamilton's teammate Pedro de la Rosa caused the only red flag of the day when he stopped on track with an apparent engine problem.

hamilton did 120 laps actually. race simulation. which makes the time even more impressive. he was already faster than everyone in the morning session but improoved by 0.7 in the afternoon.

only eventful occurance of the day was pedro's engine going bang but it was the same one alonso used and had clocked up 1,300km. pretty reliable i say. =D>

I hope that this season we can distinguish better between Spyker & Mc Laren, like it was last year.
