Williams complete Kyalami testing

FORMULA ONE testing in Kyalami came to an end on Tuesday, with a successful final day for the Williams team despite some heavy showers.

For Ralf Schumacher it was his last test before the season opener in Melbourne, and he set top time of the final day.

"I ran the Melbourne specification engine today because it was my last day in the car before the Australian Grand Prix," said the German.

Team-mate Juan Pablo Montoya suffered an engine problem, and needs all the track-time he can get in the build up to the first race of the season.

"I still have some work to do before my first Formula One race start," admitted the Colombian. "I will address this in Barcelona next week."

Olivier Panis was also on hand, driving 92 laps to set second best time of the day for BAR.

Tuesday's testing times from Kyalami:

Ralf Schumacher Williams 1:19.996
Olivier Panis BAR Honda 1:20.330
Juan Pablo Montoya Williams 1:21.010
