McLaren's Heikki Kovalainen leapt straight to the top of the timesheets on Friday in Jerez as this week's multi-team test drew to a close. Kovalainen clocked a best time of 1m 18.385s to finish almost four tenths of a second ahead of Toro Rosso's Sebastien Bourdais. Conditions were again extremely hot, with track temperatures reaching a heady 45 degrees Celsius. Kovalainen completed 83 laps in the MP4-23, which featured a variety of aero solutions, including antler wings on its nosecone. Bourdais, meanwhile, covered 113 laps in Toro Rosso's STR3. The Frenchman's programme focused predominantly on testing Bridgestone's 2009 slick tyres.
