Rosberg sets best time on day 3

By on Sunday, February 20, 2011

Nico Rosberg set the fastest time on Day 3 of the Barcelona test.

The Mercedes GP driver set the time late in the afternoon whilst Mark Webber carried out a race simulation - 66 laps.

The session was stopped 5 times today, twice for Felipe Massa when he spun in the wet, once for Perez and Maldonado who both spun off and lastly for Webber, right at the end of running.

The morning session was run largely in wet conditions, with a dry line appearing at the end of the morning, enabling Lewis Hamilton to just pip Daniel Ricciardo. The Australian handed over to race driver Buemi for the afternoon and there was also a change for HRT - Giorgio Mondini testing in place of Narain Karthikeyan
