    F1 journalist Dan Knutson in Barcelona: "Today is the last time that Kimi Raikkonen, Daniil Kvyat, Nico Hulkenberg, Max Verstappen, Felipe Nasr and Fernando Alonso will drive their cars until the opening day of practice in Melbourne on 18 March.

    "Valtteri Bottas and Kevin Magnussen had their last day yesterday.

    "Romain Grosjean is scheduled to drive the Haas tomorrow, but the team is still deciding if Esteban Gutierrez will get some more time in the car on the final day of testing."
