Monza Test - Day 3
Friday 29 August 2008
Location: Monza, Italy
Driver: Timo Glock
Track length: 5.793km
Timo Glock joined day three of Panasonic Toyota Racing's Monza test for his first experience of the TF108 around the legendary Italian circuit. Timo spent his day adapting to the Monza-specification aerodynamic package, which is geared for high speed and low downforce. He concentrated on finding better turn-in capability and a brake balance he was comfortable with while also adjusting the car to cope with Monza's notoriously high kerbs. He tried a number of different set-ups before, half an hour from the end of the test, the car got away from him and he clipped a tyre barrier at the second Lesmo. Panasonic Toyota Racing will be in action again next Friday when practice begins for the Belgian Grand Prix.
Monza Test - Day three
29 August 2008 - Giancarlo Fisichella brought the Force India Formula One Team's preparations for the Italian Grand Prix to a successful conclusion today, with 114 laps and the third fastest time of the day.
Giancarlo continued the important evaluation of set-ups and wing levels specifically for this race, his home Grand Prix, together with work to optimise balance and braking over the kerbs. Again the VJM01 ran faultlessly, allowing Giancarlo to complete more than 600km and bring the total test mileage to over 1,700km.
