Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Pista di Fiorano today. Felipe Massa covered 125 laps in chassis C24-05 to set a best time of 0:57.870s. He will continue tomorrow before Jacques Villeneuve will take over to complete the test on Thursday.

Mike Krack (Race Engineer):

"Thanks to good weather conditions we were able to run quite a lot of laps today, and the fact that we used the track exclusively also helped. In the morning we evaluated several front wings and made a selection for the forthcoming races."

"Later during the day we ran a data validation concerning the new rear we brought to Imola last weekend. We also worked on the set-up for Monaco as well as tested brakes and suspensions for this Grand Prix. Tomorrow Felipe will compare different rims for us and will also carry out damper and software checks."
