Monza, 26th May 1998 Circuit: Autodromo di Monza, 5.800 km. Driver: Luca Badoer driving F 300, chassis number 183. Weather: Air temp. 21 C, track 32 C, rain in morning, then sunshine.

Just two days after the Monaco Grand Prix, Scuderia Ferrari-Marlboro is already hard at work, preparing for the next round of the Championship, the Canadian Grand Prix on June 7th. The team's official test driver, Luca Badoer, was in action today. In the morning the track was wet but as it dried out he began doing set-up work and also tried various aerodynamic settings. Towards the end of the day, he also tried two different types of tyre. Badoer completed 46 laps with a best time of 1m 28.038s. Testing continues at Monza tomorrow, with Michael Schumacher driving.
