Today it was Scott Speed's turn to take the wheel for the final day of what can generally be summed up as a productive three days of testing at the Silverstone circuit in England.

The only fly in the ointment was a failure in the power train - currently under investigation- which shortened this afternoon's programme. Today, our American driver worked on general set-up as well as tyre evaluation.

"We did our homework on various solutions; some paid off and some didn't," reckoned technical director, Giorgio Ascanelli. "Until this afternoon, general reliability seems good, as we managed to put the equivalent of three race distances on the same quick-shift gearbox."

"And in performance terms, it seems better too. So to sum up, these three days have allowed us to sign off new steering and suspension components and the quick shift box for the French Grand Prix."
