Jaguar Racing concluded its three day test programme at Monza as Eddie Irvine took over testing duties from James Courtney and Pedro de la Rosa.

After the dramas of yesterday's session, when Courtney suffered a big off into the Ascari chicane, it was business as usual for the Jaguar Racing team. Eddie experienced few problems in evaluating brake balance and trying different set-ups on the R3B chassis.

Eddie completed 65 laps of the circuit in setting the third quickest time of the day in 1m23.748s. Toyota's Allan McNish clocked the quickest lap time clocking a 1m23.01s lap to finish ahead of Williams test-driver Antonio Pizzonia.

After his dramatic incident yesterday, James Courtney was his happy smiling self as he relayed tales of his great escape back at the Jaguar Racing factory.

Next on the agenda for the Jaguar Racing team is a trip to Magny-Cours for round 11 of the FIA Formula One World Championship.
