Team Sauber Petronas continued its four-day test at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza today. Felipe Massa covered 17 laps in chassis C23-05 to set a best time of 1:23.229s. Due to a technical problem the team finished today's test work prematurely.

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Race Engineer):

"A problem with a drive shaft caused damage to the left rear suspension. This incident occurred when Felipe was approaching the first chicane, however, he was able to keep control of the car. We decided to interrupt the test today. We are now doing a thorough analysis in order to understand the exact reason and plan to continue our test programme tomorrow."
