Ferrari develop traction control
LUCA BADOER put in more work with Ferrari's traction control development car as he ran 79 laps at a sunny Fiorano circuit on Wednesday.
The Italian test driver concentrated, as he has done for some time, on the improving experimental electronics designs ready for the re-introduction of traction control at the Spanish Grand Prix at the end of April.
Badoer clocked a best time of one minute and 0.256 seconds, and also undertook 19 practice starts.
Michael Schumacher will join Badoer at the circuit on Thursday to begin the set-up of the F2001 for the San Marino Grand Prix on Easter Sunday.
