An important test has started in Monza that draws to a close the August testing ban. None of the teams have tested for over a month and there is high expectation as preparation begins for the next race at the high-speed Monza circuit. The team completed 500km on the opening day of the test.
Test Objectives: Monza race preparation and general set-up work.
Tim Newton - Test Team Manager
"We begun an important test today in Monza. Heavy rain started before lunch so we decided to split the session to get a clear understanding of the relative performances, therefore the afternoon wet session has a separate time sheet. A systematic set-up preparation for Monza using the race chassis."
