Jarno Trulli and Ricardo Zonta today carried out the third day of a four day test with the Benson and Hedges Jordan Honda team in warm and overcast conditions.

Trulli completed 52 laps and was fourth quickest with a lap time of 1:24.87 and Zonta finished 43 laps, posting the sixth fastest time of 1:25.49. Trulli carried out tyre comparisons for Bridgestone and continued work, begun by Frentzen earlier this week, on general set-up and brake evaluation for the Italian Grand Prix.

Zonta spent the morning evaluating various aerodynamic packages and brake options, although unfortunately his day was cut short when a component failure caused him to spin off the track into the gravel. Significant damage was sustained by the car, but Zonta was unhurt. Both drivers will resume driving to complete the test tomorrow.
