Williams Duo Fly at Kyalami

Monday February 12th, 2001

Ralf Schumacher and the BMW-Williams team were dominant on the penultimate day of testing at the Kyalami circuit in South Africa, where the German driver set a new track record.

Schumacher completed a long distance run during the morning, with a total of 89 laps, the FW23 running without any problems throughout the day.

"Today we worked on endurance runs in the morning and completed a race distance on the engine," Schumacher said. "We managed a trouble-free simulation - most of which was focused around temperatures."

Teammate Juan Pablo Montoya was only a fraction slower than Schumacher, and the Colombian was pleased with his day's work after 60 laps.

"Today we moved back onto tyre compounds and I'm pleased with the lap times I achieved after some good set-up work from the team," said Montoya.

Canadian Jacques Villeneuve was more than 1.5 seconds slower than the Williams duo, driving the BAR-Honda 003, but the Brackley-based team concentrated on endurance running, completing more than 100 laps.
