Mika Salo joined Allan McNish for the third day of testing at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza in Italy today. The duo worked predominantly on general car set-up in preparation for next week's Italian Grand Prix, although differential problems restricted running for Allan in the morning session.

Allan McNish

"We had a slightly difficult morning session, but after the lunch break we made some positive changes on the car working mainly on the set-up of the car, verifying some mechanical adjustments. Overall I can feel some improvements in the car compared to the last test we had here in July, and I am looking forward to another productive day tomorrow."

Mika Salo

"Monza is one of my favourite tracks. I spent today testing and comparing various aerodynamic components, which proved quite successful, despite some problems with sensors. Like Allan, I additionally worked on general car set-up for this track and I am hoping for a positive test day tomorrow to ensure that we can maximise our preparation work for next week's race."

Both Mika and Allan conclude Italian Grand Prix preparations tomorrow on the final day of this week's Monza test.
