Team RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS continued its three-day test at Magny-Cours, as part of its programme for the upcoming Italian and US Grands Prix. Nick Heidfeld set the fastest time of 1m 13.84s during the course of 79 laps. Kimi Räikkönen will take over the driving tomorrow.

Remi Decorzent (Race engineer): "I'm very happy with the progress we have made today. We lost a little bit of track time when Nick went off this morning at the chicane and damaged the front wing, but despite that we were able to complete our tyre programme as Bridgestone's sole representative, and did further work on our aerodynamic evaluation."

Nick Heidfeld: "The car felt much better today than yesterday, as the lap times prove. The handling and balance were really good, and we made some excellent progress."
