Rain again hindered Ferrari’s progress at Mugello on Thursday. For the second time this week the team opted to cut short their planned test programme, with Michael Schumacher preferring instead to spare the car for Friday’s session.

Schumacher completed 43 laps in the current 248 F1 car before Ferrari decided to call a halt to proceedings. The former champion’s best time in the V8 machine was a 1m 29.047s.
