Team Sauber Petronas continued its three-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya today. Felipe Massa took over from Jacques Villeneuve and covered 83 laps in chassis C24-05 with a best time of 1:16.942s. He will complete the test tomorrow.

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Race Engineer):

"In the morning we first adapted the car's set-up to Felipe's driving style. We then mainly concentrated on evaluating mechanical development parts as well as new aerodynamic components."

"At the end of the test day we did a long-run with decent pace as part of our race preparation. Overall, we could feel an improvement today, but still need more understanding to meet our goals."
