Looks like the new car is FAST! And sounds relaible too. A good sign for the future.Third and final day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Fiorano circuit. Michael Schumacher brought the F2004’s first test session to a close, covering a total of 115 laps (18 of which on the short course) the quickest in a time of 55”999.
“I am satisified with this first session,” declared Michael at the end of the day. “I immediately got a positive feel from the car, but the most important thing is that we managed to cover about 700 kilometres without the slightest problem.”
The Scuderia’s test programme resumes tomorrow, when Luca Badoer will be at the wheel of an F2003-GA in Barcelona.
