  1. Post update

    Right, that's me done for the week. Thanks for your company, I'd like to think we've learnt a bit and had a few chuckles along the way.

    I'll be back next week with live text commentary from the second test on Tuesday. See you then.

  2. Post update

    Thanks Alistair! I did pretty much all the races last year but we'll forget that little detail and I'll simply bask in the glory of this tweet.

  5. Hamilton wins the battle of the laps

  6. Chequered flag

    And we're done.

    Kimi Raikkonen rounds off the week by finishing fastest. That's three out of the four days a Ferrari has been top of the timesheet.

    As we know, though, Mercedes have just been toying with the rest of the field.

  7. Post update

    Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa are out to sneak a lap in. Daniil Kvyat also heads out. He currently has the second fastest time of the day.

  8. Go! Go! Go!

    The track is green again.

    McLaren, you have three minutes.

    Yes I think this is for the best.

  11. Red flag

    A late red flag and it would seem that Kevin Magnussen was pushing too hard. The Renault has come to a stop on the circuit.

  12. Post update

    Well, Fernando Alonso has just tweeted a picture of him meeting kids from the Alonso karting campus.

    I might be wrong, but that would suggest he isn't getting out for the final 10 minutes. 

  13. Post update

    Brilliant from K-Mag! 

    The lad is flying.

  14. The Fonz is flying

    He can indeed!

    Alfonso is round in 1:24.293 to shoot up to third, behind Daniil Kvyat and Kimi Raikkonen. Noice.

  15. Post update

    Alfonso Celis has strapped on the super softs and is out on the track. Can the Force India development driver get himself up towards the top of the timesheet before the end?

  16. Post update

    Ever wondered what engineers get up to when the drivers are out on track?

    This, apparently...

  17. Time running out for McLaren

    With 25 minutes to go, it is really not looking good for an appearance from the McLaren is it? 

    Such a shame after the week had started quite well for them.

    Didn't I say earlier maths wasn't my strong point...

  20. Post update

    Nico Rosberg completes his 72nd lap. He's got 35 minutes to complete 28 more laps and surpass Lewis Hamilton's 99-lap total. 

    The race is on.
