Toyota complete third test

TOYOTA completed the third test of their Formula One challenger at the Paul Ricard circuit on Friday as Scot Allan McNish completed more than 200 laps during a four-day workout.

McNish was concentrating on long runs to test new parts on the car -- including tires, chassis and cooling systems -- and he made constant adjustments to the set-up.

McNish said: "We made some improvements with the chassis, which made the car feel more stable and better to drive."

Toyota is now moving to Italy to test at the Imola and Monza circuits with the purpose of these tests to gather essential circuit data.

The three-day Imola test will begin on 5 June. Testing at Monza will take place the following week from 11 to 13 June.
