Third day of testing this week -- the first at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit -- for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro. Marc Gene took to the track this morning, working on a development programme of electronics, new components and tyres.

Testing ended earlier than anticipated after an off-track excursion for the Scuderia's official test driver. The driver was unhurt, but the car sustained damage to the bodywork and some components: the necessary repairs took up the rest of the day. Up to that moment, Gene had covered 36 laps, with a best time of 1.18.248.

Gene continues testing at this track tomorrow.

Circuit: Jerez circuit -- 4.428 km
Driver: Marc Gené
Car: F2004
