Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Circuito Permanente de Jerez today. Felipe Massa covered 79 laps in chassis C24-05 to set a best time of 1:17.997s. He will continue tomorrow before Jacques Villeneuve will take over on Friday.

Paul Russell (Test Engineer):

"It was actually a tricky day today. There were quite a few red-flag periods in the afternoon, which made it a bit frustrating. However, our focus this week will naturally be the preparation for the next races whereby we will concentrate on high-downforce configurations."

"We have started to validate the new aerodynamic parts which were introduced in Silverstone last weekend and gathered good information. In addition, Felipe did some Michelin tyre work for Hockenheim and Budapest."

"For the rest of the week we have scheduled further aerodynamic follow-up work and to continue the Michelin tyre programme."

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C24-05
79 laps, 349.812 kilometres
Best time: 1:17.997
