Webbo fastest on a soggy final day in Barcelona

It was Mark Webber’s turn to top the charts, as rain hit the final day of testing in Barcelona.

The Australian set a best time of 1:21.953, well clear of Heikki Kovalainen’s second place 1:23.589.

Kimi Raikkonen set a 1:23.619 in limited running, followed by Robert Kubica (1:24.715), Jenson Button (1:24.873) and Kazuki Nakajima (1:24.927).

Nelson Piquet (1:26.100) and Jarno Trulli (1:32.150) rounded out the remaining drivers as the test drew to a close.
