First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro. Luca Badoer was at the wheel at the Mugello circuit, for a test programme with the F2003-GA.

Unfortunately, after a handful of laps, Badoer went off the track at the Arrabbiata 1 corner and crashed very heavily into the barriers. Initial analysis points to a mechanical problem.

The driver is in good physical condition. After undergoing checks at a hospital in Florence, he was able to go home. The car was seriously damaged and has been taken back to Maranello for a detailed examination.

The Scuderia continues testing tomorrow at the Fiorano circuit, with Felipe Massa driving an F2002.
