Ferrari’s pre-season preparations continued on Thursday, with a shakedown run of the F2007s the Italian team will take to Australia for 2007’s opening race in Melbourne next weekend. Long-time tester Luca Badoer was charged with driving duties at the Fiorano track.

Although the track was wet during the morning, Badoer completed 20 laps, half on the short version of the Italian circuit, and clocked a best time of 1m 00.007s. The official Ferrari tester split his running between the three F2007 chassis that will accompany the team to Albert Park for the Australian Grand Prix.
