Busy day for Schumacher and Ferrari

By on

Third day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working again today at the Catalunya Circuit, near Barcelona, with seven time World Champion Michael Schumacher getting back behind the wheel of a Formula One car.

The day's programme centred on trying various different types of Bridgestone tyre aimed at 2009, using an F2008 that had been modified to try and reproduce the levels of aerodynamic downforce expected next season.

The day in figures is as follows: 83 laps for Michael, the quickest in a time of 1.19.323.

The Scuderia continues testing at this circuit tomorrow, when Kimi Raikkonen will be on track.
