Mark Webber concluded a productive two-day test session at the Paul Ricard circuit in France on Thursday as the Jaguar Racing team began its preparations for the A1-Ring.

Working on a fix to the launch control system that ruined Antonio Pizzonia's Spanish Grand Prix, as well as testing tyre compounds and mechanical set-up, the Australian finished seventh fastest on both Wednesday and Thursday -- completing a marathon 180 laps in the process.

"Yesterday (Wednesday) was a very successful day and Mark worked on weight distribution tests, aerodynamics and fuel consumption programmes," commented Head of Vehicle Performance, Dr Mark Gillan. "Today Mark continued the work started yesterday as well as well as tyre compound testing and mechanical set-up work. Overall, it was a pretty good day."

Ralf Schumacher finished the day fastest of all, ahead of the McLaren duo of Alexander Wurz and David Coulthard. No less than 11 drivers attended Thursday's busy test day.

Antonio Pizzonia takes over testing duties for Jaguar Racing on Friday as the team completes its preparations for the Austrian Grand Prix.
