While a few teams were in the UK testing at Silverstone, two were at the Mugello circuit today where McLaren test driver Alex Wurz set the fastest time of the day. In dry conditions Wurz clock a fastest of 1:23.288 over a total of 98 laps. Jean Alesi joined him for his first run in the MP4-17 and completed 78 laps, the former Prost and Jordan driver less than seven tenths behind in second fastest.

Both Toyota drivers were present for the session, Mika Salo finishing third fastest ahead of Allan McNish. Salo worked on aerodynamics and set up but an engine failure finished his test programme early. McNish concentrated on mechanical grip and was pleased with a productive day.
