Michael Schumacher got the chance to do some dry running in Jerez today, completing 79 laps and ending the day as the fifth fastest driver.

The German was pleased with the dry track, and says that next week's Barcelona test will tell gim more about the performance of the new car. “Today was a nice end to my testing days in Jerez this week and it was great to finally have some consistent dry running. We are on schedule with our programme but at the same time, we are well aware that there is still a lot of work ahead of us. The final test in Barcelona next week will be an important test in this respect and will give us valuable information about the performance of the car.”

Mercedes focused on developing the set-up of the new MGP W01, and evaluating changes in the car over longer runs.

Nico Rosberg will be in the car for the fourth and final day of the Jerez test.
