First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Mugello circuit. Today, Luca Badoer was at the wheel for the track debut of the F2005.

The Scuderia's official test driver completed a total of 61 laps (9 of them on the short version of the track,) the quickest being a 1:22.210.

"When a new car takes its first steps, it is always a very emotional moment," said Luca. "This morning there was obviously some tension, which quickly lifted, going out on the track and seeing that everything is fine. After these initial laps, I can say that we are satisfied."

Testing continues at this track tomorrow, again with Badoer driving the F2005.
