Schumacher upbeat in Fiorano test

WORLD CHAMPION Michael Schumacher joined test driver Luca Badoer as the Ferrari team works to reestablish the supremacy that took Schumacher to six consecutive race victories.

Badoer continued working on traction control systems at the wheel of the F1-2000, putting in 53 laps and logging a best time of 1:01.353.

Schumacher meanwhile fettled his F2001 in preparation for the San Marino Grand Prix, concentrating mainly on set-up, tires and aerodynamics but his day ended early when he clouted the barrier, damaging the car's rear suspension. Schumacher ran 52 laps with a best time of 1:00.179.

"All in all, coming second in Brazil was a good result, given everything that happened," Schumacher said. "Of course I would have preferred to win but you can't do it all the time.x Both drivers will resume working at Fiorano on Friday.
