Whilst the teams testing in Portugal were gladdened by sunnier weather at Portimao, Ferrari continued to dodge the showers as their private test session continued at Mugello on Wednesday.

Felipe Massa was back behind the wheel of the F60 after taking over from team mate Kimi Raikkonen. He covered 104 laps of the Italian track and finished the day with a best time of 1m 33.353s.

Although the dampness of the circuit prevented the Brazilian from evaluating the slick tyres he will use this season, he was able to continue the development work started by Raikkonen on Monday and Tuesday.

Massa will continue in the F60 cockpit on Thursday, as Ferrari conclude their Mugello programme for the week.
