Fourth day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Mugello circuit. Today, both Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher were in action, with the Brazilian the first to run, starting work at 9.20. Barrichello ran until 12.40 completing 43 laps. His best time was 1.22.139. After a three hour break, it was Michael Schumacher's turn to get behind the wheel of the F2001. The World Champion did 19 laps, the quickest being a 1.22.923.

"This was my last day of testing before the Australian Grand Prix," said Barrichello. "My lap time? I am not surprised, but I am certainly happy with the work we have done so far." "Today's times confirm that the car is very quick," added Schumacher. "Right from the start, I have had a positive feeling about the car and that continues to be the case with every day that passes."

Both drivers worked on set-ups and aerodynamics.

Testing ended at 18.00 and Michael Schumacher will continue driving at this track tomorrow.
