Felipe Massa in chassis C23-03 ran 89 laps with a best time of 1:17.344 From 17 to 19 February the team will be testing in Imola.

Jacky Eeckelaert (Chief Race Engineer):

"Today we focused on mechanical set-up scans and cooling configuration checks concerning the Melbourne race. We also completed the Bridgestone tyre compounds work with Giancarlo which was originally scheduled for yesterday. In the afternoon we changed the engine of his car as it has reached its given mileage."

"After the problems yesterday we were still able to catch up and to complete our test programme. Considering that we ran nearly 2,000 kilometres in three days with both cars we can say that we reached our set target of this week."
