Team Sauber Petronas completed final day of a three-day test - and the last Formula I test until September - in Valencia today. Felipe Massa covered 104 laps and set a time of 1m.13.715 s

Giampaolo Dall'ara (Head of test Team):

"Today has been highly productive and we achieved a very high mileage which was our target. Since this is the last test for a while we had a great deal to get through in preparation for the remaining Grand Prix of the season. Today Felipe conducted further aerodynamic tests, did some more work on brake development, validated our traction control set-up by doing back-to-back tests and also carried out a tyre program for Bridgestone."

Felipe Massa:

"I am happy to have done so much running today. It feels as if we have tried every conceivable configuration on the car. Certainly the work we have done at this test has enabled to improve it for the French Grand Prix. I am looking forward to the race in Magny-Cours next week."
