Schumacher upbeat in Fiorano test
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.
