Ferrari busy at Fiorano, Mugello

FERRARI has been busy as of late, testing continuously at both the Mugello and Fiorano circuits with Michael Schumacher, Rubens Barrichello and Luca Badoer in both F2001 and F2002 chassis.

Schumacher tested at Fiorano on Thursday behind the wheel of a F2001 and on an artificially soaked track Friday in a F2002. Both days were partially used to test for Bridgestone. The German will move to Mugello Saturday to continue testing for the San Marino GP.

Rubens Barrichello has been busy getting accustomed to the F2002 in Mugello. The Brazilian will race the new car for the first time at Imola next weekend, and spent Thursday and Friday conducting long runs in the car.

Test driver Luca Badoer was in Fiorano Wednesday, prior to Michael Schumacher's arrival, and will return on Saturday to take over testing duties from the world champion.
