Ferrari continued development work with the already dominant F2004 today [Tuesday], and with no let up in sight, the Scuderia was running on two fronts, Felipe Massa at Mugello, while test driver, Luca Badoer ran at Monza.

Massa, who drives for Team Sauber-Petronas - Ferrari's 'junior team' - worked on a tyre test programme, aimed at the coming races, the next of which will be at the Circuit de Catalunya, in Barcelona.

The Brazilian completed a total of 72 laps, 16 of them on the short version of the track, with a best time on the day of 1m 19.529s.

Badoer meanwhile ran in equally favourable conditions - dry and sunny - his programme also centring on Bridgestone tyre development, although he also worked on engine testing. At the request of the Scuderia, the Monza track was modified with the addition of two chicanes. A total of 490 kilometres was completed.

Tomorrow [Wednesday] Badoer continues running at Monza, while run away championship leader, Michael Schumacher will take over the F2004 at Mugello.
