The testing session at the Paul Ricard HTTT continued today with Ferrari (Felipe Massa/Luca Badoer) and McLaren Mercedes (Kimi Raikkonen/Gary Paffett) on the 1E SC Short track solution (5,216 km). The four drivers completed over 2000 km under a sunny sky with nice temperatures (23°C).

Ferrari set again today the fastest times and improved yesterday's overall best lap time set by Felipe Massa (01:23.052, 9/10 fastest). The greatest number of laps was again completed by Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer (112 laps).

Teams continued tyre testing to prepare for the United States Grand Prix and concentrated on aerodynamic development and set-up work. The test session will end tomorrow on the same track solution with both teams. Pedro de La Rosa will take over from Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the McLaren Mercedes car.
