Third and final day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working once again today at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, near Portimao, in southern Portugal.
Luca Badoer was the last driver to sit at the wheel of the F2008 this year. The Scuderia's official test driver completed the planned programme at the first ever Formula 1 test session at this new Portuguese circuit, working on finding the best set-up for the car on the 2009 slick tyres. He also evaluated new solutions for next season and on endurance testing of the engine. Luca covered a total of 75 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.30.163.
