Circuit: Autodromo di Monza 5.793 kms

Driver: Sebastien Bourdais
Chassis: STR3-02
Best time: 1:23.865
77 laps (7th)

Having driven yesterday afternoon, Sebastien Bourdais brought this three day test to a close, working on race preparation for the Italian Grand Prix. On the agenda, a tyre comparison programme, evaluation of brakes, the Monza-specific aero configuration and general set up work. Five red flag periods and a mechanical problem on the car reduced French Seb's running time in the afternoon.

"In general, this three day test has gone well and produced some quite promising results, "commented Chief Test Engineer, Gianvito Amico. "Our focus was always on reliability and consistency, rather than looking for performance and the results would indicate that we are in good shape for the up coming races."
