Team Sauber Petronas continued its three-day test at the Silverstone Circuit today. Felipe Massa covered 71 laps in chassis C23-05 to set a best time of 1:19.980s. Tomorrow Giancarlo Fisichella will take over the driving to complete the test.

Mike Krack (Race Engineer):

"Thanks to good weather and track conditions we were able to complete our scheduled programme for today and the test went quite well for us. We have done some set-up checks in the morning before we started to work with Bridgestone on the tyre construction for the next races. In addition, we evaluated different brakes."

"Tomorrow Giancarlo will do a set-up validation and besides this will compare several cooling. Further Bridgestone tyre tests for the Canadian Grand Prix and aerodynamic work are also planned for Thursday."
