Scuderia Ferrari-Marlboro was soon back to work after its splendid one-two finish in the Italian Grand Prix. Both Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine were in action at Mugello to start preparing for the Luxembourg Grand Prix, scheduled for Sunday 27th September at the Nurburgring.

Irvine began work at 11, while Schumacher started in the early afternoon. After a few set-up laps, the German did tyre testing, while his Irish team mate worked solely on the set-up of his F 300. Schumacher did 81 laps with a best time of 1m 27.749s and Irvine was fractionally quicker with a 1.27.626s being his best. He did 25 laps less than Schumacher. Both drivers continue testing tomorrow.
