Lewis Hamilton fastest for McLaren on Day 4 in Jerez

The weather was better than the rains of yesterday and Lewis Hamilton was putting in some pretty decent lap times all day. However, on his last 3 laps he posted the fastest 3 laps of the day, each one getting faster than the previous. He ended up more than half a second faster than Adrian Sutil, who was the 2nd fastest for Force India.

1. Lewis Hamilton, McLaren, 1:19.583, 113 Laps
2. Adrian Sutil, Force India, 1:20.180, 84 Laps
3. Rubens Barrichello, Williams, 1:20.341, 90 Laps
4. Robert Kubica, Renault, 1:20.358, 86 Laps
5. Michael Schumacher, Mercedes GP, 1:20.613, 84 Laps
6. Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull, 1:21.203, 90 Laps
7. Felipe Massa, Ferrari, 1:21.486, 160 Laps
8. Pedro de la Rosa, BMW Sauber, 1:22.134, 105 Laps
9. Lucas di Grassi, Virgin, 1:22.912, 63 Laps
10. Jaime Alguersuari, Toro Rosso, 1:24.072, 98 Laps

Hamilton’s fastest lap of today was actually the fastest lap of the whole 4 days of testing. Although we don’t know all the circumstances of everyone’s testing sessions, that has to send a message to the rest of the teams – that Lewis Hamilton and McLaren are back, and they have their eyes on the 2010 Championships, both of them!

This next picture is one that I’m sure we’ll see on many racetracks in the upcoming season – Lewis Hamilton being followed by the returning Michael Schumacher!
