Team SAUBER PETRONAS continued its three-day test at the Pista di Fiorano today. Felipe Massa covered 116 laps in chassis C24-05 to set a best time of 0:58.566s. Favorable weather and the reliability of the C24 allowed Massa and the team to make good progress on their testing programme.

"Today we finished the validation regarding the new rear which we had in Imola, and also assessed several cooling options for it," explained race engineer Mike Krack. "We also gathered valuable data from damper tests. In addition, Felipe further evaluated the modified traction control programme which we used for the first time last weekend.

"We were able to complete the schedule programme even earlier than we thought, which gave us some extra time for set-up work for the next races."

Jacques Villeneuve will take over driving duties tomorrow and continue to work with the team on car setup.
