Alex Wurz was next up for the Wiliams team and ahead of Toyota monopost driven by Jarno Trulli.

Sebastien Bourdais set quite a good time in this 3rd session of testing.He finished on the 8th place, and was overtaken by the number 1, the Finn Kimi Raikkonen with just 1.5 seconds.This looks like a small difference but in Formula 1 counts every tenth of a second.

Now Colin Kolles, Spyker team boss has to take a difficult decision.If he considers that Klien is the solution to take Christijan’s place that means the young driver is one lucky guy.

Narain Karthikeyan seems he was not taken in consideration by the Spyker team. Few days ago he was favourite to take Christijan’s place but it seems that Klien was a better solution for the Dutch team.
