The C23 continued to run flawlessly for team SAUBER PETRONAS today at the Circuit de Catalunya. Felipe Massa took over driving duties and set a fastest time of 1:17.015 in 82 laps. Work continued on both tyres and aerodynamic parts for the next set of back-to-back races. Race Engineer, Mike Krack talks about today's work. "Our test today went well and according to schedule. We concentrated on further Bridgestone work and evaluated the tyre compound for Silverstone as well as the tyre construction for the forthcoming races. In the early afternoon we changed the engine as it has reached its mileage. For tomorrow we have planned some aerodynamic checks and the assessment of new dampers. The validation particularly of the collected Bridgestone tyre data is also on our schedule."

Massa will continue as tomorrow's test driver before the team packs up and heads to France to complete a hectic eight period of this year's season.
