Second day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working again today at both Fiorano and Monza.

On the track which hosts the Italian Grand Prix on 12th September, Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello were in action. The German driver had an endurance run on his schedule, as well as trying various set-up configurations on the car.

Testing ended earlier than planned because of an off-track excursion (by Schumacher). While the driver was uninjured, the car was badly damaged. Up to that point, Michael had completed 95 laps, the quickest in 1:21.063. Barrichello did 57 laps, with a best time of 1:20.849. The Brazilian worked on tyre testing, set-up and trying new aerodynamic components.

At Fiorano, Luca Badoer continued with a Bridgestone tyre development programme, covering a total of 96 laps (18 of them on the short version of the track.) His quickest lap was a 58"712.

Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro continues testing tomorrow with Luca Badoer on track at Fiorano.
