Second day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Mugello circuit. Michael Schumacher took to the track today, at the wheel of an F2004. The day's programme centred on development of the new car.

Schumacher completed a total of 63 laps, with a quickest time of 1:19.060. Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, once again with Schumacher on track.

First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the "Enzo e Dino Ferrari" circuit in Imola. Luca Badoer took to the track today, at the wheel of an F2003-GA. The Scuderia's official test driver was working on a tyre test programme.

The session ended earlier than planned because of a heavy crash at the Variante Alta corner, from which the driver emerged unscathed. Up to that point, he had covered 58 laps, the quickest in a time of 1'21"412. As a precaution, following the accident, Badoer underwent some checks which ruled out any problem and confirmed that he was fit to drive. Testing continues tomorrow, once again with Luca Badoer on track.
