First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working as from today at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in the extreme south of Spain.

The Maranello team's official test driver Luca Badoer took to the track for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working on two main areas: the morning was dedicated to comparing various different aerodynamic solutions, while in the afternoon, he ran slick tyres in preparation for the 2009 season, with the consequent modifications to the aerodynamics on the F2008, to try and replicate the levels of downforce that will be required starting next year.

In total, Badoer completed 69 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.20.697. "We completed our planned programme," commented Luca before leaving the circuit. "This morning it was important to go deeply into some technical elements to understand what happened last Sunday in Hockenheim. We picked up a lot of data, and that will continue over the next few days when we also test some solutions for the forthcoming races."

Kimi Raikkonen will be on track for the Scuderia tomorrow.
