Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza today. Giancarlo Fisichella covered 90 laps in chassis C23-05 to set a best time of 1:22.024s. Tomorrow he will continue before Felipe Massa will take over on Friday to complete the test.

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Race Engineer):

"This week our main target is, of course, working on our low downforce level in preparation to the Italian Grand Prix here in Monza next week."

"In the course of this we concentrated today on assessing Bridgestone tyre compound specifications whereby we plan to validate the collected data by long-runs tomorrow. As Monza is very hard on brakes we ran brake tests today, too."

Giancarlo Fisichella
Chassis: C23-05
