Circuit: Autodromo di Monza - 5.793 kms

Driver: Sebastian Vettel
Chassis: STR3-02
Best time: 1:23.691
99 laps
Pos.4th

Just three days after a strong points scoring, double top ten finish in Valencia, Scuderia Toro Rosso was back on track for the first of three days of testing at Monza, which hosts the Italian Grand Prix on 14 September.

The STR3 ran with the low aerodynamic downforce configuration required at this high speed track and Vettel also evaluated a new front suspension and some aero components not specifically aimed at Monza. Running on just one type of Bridgestone tyre all day, the car ran trouble free, completing a higher mileage than planned, including a long run, equivalent to over half a race distance, with Seb's quickest lap posted towards the end of this run.

Tomorrow, German Seb runs in the morning, with French Seb taking over at the wheel for the remaining day and a half of this test.
