Ferrari back to work in Fiorano

WORLD CHAMPIONS Ferrari returned to their Fiorano testing circuit on Tuesday to work on their electronic systems following last Sunday's Austrian Grand Prix.

Michael Schumacher suffered problems with their launch control and had to switch from an electronically-aided start to a manual start in Austria.

Test driver Luca Badoer did 13 practice starts in Fiorano as the team tried to get to the root of their problems.

In a long day, the Italian completed 107 laps of the circuit and set a best time of one minute 00.211 seconds.
