Mugello Test 16-18 April - Day 17 April 200

Panasonic Toyota Racing continued its three-day test at the Mugello circuit in Italy today. Both Mika Salo and Allan McNish completed a reasonable number of laps with no major technical problems.

Mika Salo

"I am happy with my final day's work because we have found solutions to some problems we had in Imola, although it's a bit late now. Joking aside, we finished the aero tests that I started yesterday and did some work on traction control. We also used on my car some of the positive results that Allan found on mechanical grip, and we have made quite good progress."

Allan McNish

"We basically continued with our regime from yesterday and did a lot of mechanical set-up work on the car. We have been concentrating on very general work and it was a productive day of testing. Things are improving all the time and I will stay on for the final day tomorrow in order to complete my test programme."

Allan McNish will continue running at Mugello tomorrow to conclude the three-day test. Test drivers, Stephane Sarrazin and Ryan Briscoe, will both be available to drive the second TF102.
