Jenson Button completed the four day test at Monza today. Giancarlo finished his testing last night. Today the concentration was on suspension set ups applicable to both the forthcoming Grand Prix of Monza and next weekend German™s Grand Prix. This included testing of some few components. As a result of some tyre difficulties experienced by Williams earlier in the week, our running today was done on one set of tyres which had a modified construction in order to establish their endurance over a long distance. In spite of this, good progress was made with the car. Further developments were tried on the RS21 engine today. These produced positive results although testing was curtailed with a minor problem on the development engine.
