Barrichello Pleased with Progress at Mugello

Sunday February 11th, 2001

Brazilian Rubens Barrichello completed his duties in Ferrari's seven-day test at Mugello when he ran the long-distance programme originally scheduled for Saturday.

Barrichello ran a total of 63 laps in the F2001 as he performed the long-distance run, which had been prevented on Saturday because of wet weather.

He posted a quickest lap time of 1:25.739 in the car which featured the same engine used on Saturday. The engine has now clocked up over 450 kilometres without any technical problems.

"I am pleased with the work we have done today," Barrichello said. "After two days running on a damp track, I finally managed to run continuously on a dry circuit. It has increased my confidence with the new car.

"Tomorrow I will be at Fiorano for a test with the F1-2000 and then on Tuesday I will return to Mugello to continue development work with the F2001."
