The phrase, "après moi le deluge" (after me the downpour) is attributed to either King Louis XV of France or his mistress Madame de Pompadour. Well, it seems that both of them must surely be holidaying in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy as, for a second consecutive day, Scuderia Toro Rosso's testing at Imola was pretty much wiped out by very heavy rain.

This was the first day that the two races drivers had been on track together in two STR 1 cars: Tonio Liuzzi was in chassis 2, while Scott Speed gave chassis 1 its track debut today.

"The conditions were worse than yesterday," reckoned Chief Engineer, Laurent Mekies. "So we decided to devote the entire day to sharpening up our pit-stop practice with both drivers. It all went smoothly and now tomorrow's programme is in the hands of the weather gods".

Car: STR1-02
Driver: Tonio Liuzzi
Laps: 48
Best time: 1:29.087

Car: STR1-01
Driver: Scott Speed
Laps: 44
Best time: 1:33.410
