Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya today. Felipe Massa covered 48 laps in chassis C23-05 to set a best time of 1:17.104. Felipe Massa will continue testing tomorrow before Giancarlo Fisichella will take over the driving on Friday.

Mike Krack (Race Engineer):

"Right at the beginning of our test day we had to change the engine as a consequence of a mechanical problem. Due to this interruption we finally could not conduct our programme as scheduled. In the afternoon we began our race preparation for Barcelona and worked with Bridgestone on tyre constructions."

"Tomorrow we will continue our Bridgestone programme and will sort out the tyre construction and compounds for the Spanish Grand Prix. In the course of this brake checks and the assessment of some new aerodynamic parts are scheduled as well."
