Montoya's engine difficulties at Monza
The Colombian lost track time after his BMW power unit was changed as a precaution because of a sudden drop in oil pressure, but he still was quicker than Sauber rival Nick Heidfeld with a lap time of one minute and 24.765 seconds.
"We were meant to do quite a lot of running but lost a bit of track time due to an engine related problem," Montoya said. "It was nothing major and we learned quite a lot again.
"We managed to complete just about everything we had planned. All in all I thought it was a pretty good test."
Heidfeld, who took over from team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, was more than six-tenths of a second slower than Montoya with a best time of one minute and 25.408 seconds.
