Ferrari testing down to the wire
The team went to Mugello with Schumacher doing 52 laps of the track on Tuesday and another 60 on Thursday. Irvine was given the car on Wednesday and completed 72 laps of the track. The testing meant that the team will have to fly out at least one chassis separately from the main freight, which departed in the middle of the week and arrived at Melbourne over the weekend.
Luca Badoer gave the car a final shakedown test at Fiorano on Sunday before it was rushed to Milan to be freighted to Australia.
