Valencia Day 3: Kubica's Lotus Renault on top After three days of pre-season testing a third constructor topped the timesheets on Thursday, with Robert Kubica's Renault seeing off Adrian Sutil's Force India.
Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull ended the opening day on top before Fernando Alonso piped the German to the post on Wednesday, but it was Kubica who recorded the fastest time of the week, beating his more fancied competitors to the first 'win' of the season.
After two days fraught with problems, matters looked to be improving for Mercedes GP, with Schumacher posting the third fastest time of the morning with a 1:14.537, 0.108 faster than team-mate Nico Rosberg's quickest lap yesterday.
Despite a long run in the afternoon, the German was unable to better his time while others sped, finishing the day in a disappointing ninth spot.
