Team Sauber Petronas completed its three-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya today. Felipe Massa covered 96 laps in chassis C24-05 with a best time of 1:16.582s.

Team Sauber Petronas will be testing again from 26 to 28 April in Fiorano.

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Race Engineer):

"Today we were quite hindered by the bad weather conditions. It started to rain in the morning and the track was basically wet until close to the end of the test day. Luckily we got a test extension and thanks to that we were able to do some data verifications in dry conditions."

"We found some conclusions for the aerodynamics at Imola and have completed our race preparation for the San Marino Grand Prix, but unfortunately we were not in the position to finish a few issues for the race in Barcelona."

"Overall, we have found some results during our test this week, but we are still not at the pace we want to be and need to work for further improvements."

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C24-05
96 laps, 444.192 kilometres
Best time: 1:16.582
