Team Sauber Petronas completed its three-day test at the Circuito Permanente de Jerez today. Felipe Massa covered 87 laps in chassis C24-05 to set a best time of 1:17.376s.

Team Sauber Petronas will be testing again from 13 to 15 July in Jerez.

Paul Russell (Test Engineer):

"In the morning we further tested new aerodynamic parts and the new front wing which we brought here to evaluate worked well. Later we concentrated on long-runs to choose tyre options for Magny-Cours and achieved competitive lap times. We believe that we could set a good basis for the final tyre choice for the French Grand Prix."

"Overall, it was a decent test this week with good results and we were able to complete our programme as scheduled."
