Third and last day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, in southern Spain.

Once again today on track were Luca Badoer and Michael Schumacher. The Scuderia's official test driver worked on development of new components aimed at next season, covering a total of 76 laps; the quickest in a time of 1:17.241. Michael continued on evaluating Bridgestone tyres for the Brazilian Grand Prix; as well as finding the best set-up for the 248 F1.
