Team Sauber Petronas started its three-day test at the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello today. Heinz-Harald Frentzen covered 57 laps in chassis 05 to set a best time of 1:24.267. He will continue the driving tomorrow before Nick Heidfeld will take over on Thursday.

Jacky Eeckelaert (Head of Vehicle Engineering):

"Our test schedule for today basically comprised testing new aerodynamic parts and working on tyre data. The new aerodynamic parts, which have mainly been tested at the wind tunnel needed further data verification. We have also done aerodynamic tests on the downforce level required for the next race."

"In preparation for Barcelona we have checked the Bridgestone data in order to confirm our previous tyre selection. Overall, we were not able to complete our programme as planned. The engine failure in the morning threw us back and we could only continue by noon. However, we will work hard to catch up tomorrow."
