It’s the final day of the first F1 winter testing session today, with De La Rosa out in the Ferrari, albeit for less than a lap with his Ferrari catching fire due to a gearbox issue.  Poor Pedro.

Others have had plenty of trouble free running with Vettel, Pic, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Bottas, Razia and Bianchi all out on track in the sunny climes of Jerez.

One thing is clear for F1 in 2013 – these cars are quick, yes yes they are F1 racing cars, but even compared with 2012, the lap times are impressive.  Follow the testing timesheet here.
