Australian Grand Prix winners Ferrari continued testing on Friday at the Fiorano track in Italy, with both Rubens Barrichello and test driver Luca Badoer.
Barrichello, who was unable to test on Thursday due to the delay in the arrival of the F2001 from Melbourne, could begin his work today. The Brazilian tested new aerodynamic components to be used at next week's Malaysian Grand Prix, completing a total of 68 laps with a best time of 1:00.067.
Meanwhile, Italian Badoer continued working for the fourth consecutive day at the wheel of the F1-2000, still developing electronic systems to be introduced at this year's Spanish Grand Prix. Badoer did 66 laps with a fastest one of 1:01.067.
Both Barrichello and Badoer will continue working on Saturday, when testing will conclude before the team fly to Kuala Lumpur.
