Team Sauber Petronas continued its three-day test at the Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet today. Heinz-Harald Frentzen covered 98 laps in chassis 05 to set a best time of 1:14.376. Nick Heidfeld will take over the driving tomorrow.

Jacky Eeckelaert (Head of Vehicle Engineering):

"In the morning we have done front wing optimisations for Monaco and have particularly adjusted it to this slow speed track and the high downforce level required for this grand prix. We further tested several mechanical set-ups for Monaco."

"The schedule for the afternoon focused on tyre tests for the next race in Spielberg. Unfortunately we experienced a mechanical problem with the gearbox just before the end of the test day. Although we nearly completed our programme for today by then we will have to continue the tyre tests tomorrow with Nick Heidfeld."
