De la Rosa tops final day at Jerez

Pedro de la Rosa put McLaren at the top of the charts as teams put in a final day of preparation for the remaining four races of the season.

Nick Heidfeld was second for BMW Sauber, and Renault’s Lucas di Grassi was third, as the weather cleared in Spain after a rainy afternoon yesterday.

Sebastian Vettel was back with Toro Rosso after logging yesterday’s top time with future employer Red Bull Racing, while current RBR test driver and possible future STR driver Sebastien Buemi (confused?) was back with the parent squad. Today Vettel was good enough for fourth and Buemi fifth.

Timo Glock (Toyota), Alex Wurz (Honda), and Nico Rosberg (Williams) rounded out the field in Spain.

Meanwhile, Ferrari continued its three-day test at Mugello with Felipe Massa behind the wheel in the wet.

The weather on the first two days was much more cooperative, with Luca Badoer kicking things off and Kimi Raikkonen was in action yesterday.
