Felipe Massa continued the second half of Ferrari's twin-pronged test programme at Monza yesterday day, working on developments for the final two races of the year as the Scuderia stayed on at the Monza circuit that had witnessed a 1-3 finish on Sunday.

The Brazilian, tipped to return to Sauber next year although yet to sign a contract, completed 72 laps of the historic autodromo, as he concentrated on set-up and technical developments specifically aimed at next weekend's United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis. With warm sunshine again accompanying the team as it worked, Massa sliced more than a second off his previous best time from Tuesday, finally recording 1min 21.816secs before his F2003-GA was packed away.

The Scuderia has now completed its Monza outing and will resumes this afternoon [Thursday] at Fiorano, with Luca Badoer replacing Massa behind the wheel.
