Final day of testing this year for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, which brought its season to a close at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, in southern Spain.

Indeed, it fell to a Spaniard, Marc Gene, to be the final Ferrari man to drive on a race track this year. The Scuderia's official test driver brought the planned programme to a close, which included development of new components, adaptation of the car to the new tyres and overall reliability: 99 the number of laps completed, the quickest in a time of 1:21.012.

Unfortunately, Luca Badoer's day, which should have featured a similar programme to his colleague's, came to a premature end because of an engine problem: 39 laps for the Italian driver, the quickest in 1:19.894.

Circuit: Jerez circuit - 4.423 km
Drivers: Luca Badoer and Marc Gene
Cars: 248 F1
Weather: air temperature 7/17 °C, track temperature 7/21 °C. Clear skies, with a few clouds in the afternoon.
