Ferrari joins Williams in Jerez

Ferrari resumed their testing program at the Jerez circuit Tuesday, their first day testing since the winter break. The Italian squad took little time to get on pace with Williams, who began their program at the Spanish circuit Monday.

Ferrari test drivers Luca Badoer and Luciano Burti joined Williams drivers Ralf Schumacher and Marc Gene in Jerez. Badoer set the fastest time of the day while completing nearly 60 laps working on tire and electronic development for the next-generation F2003. Burti was third fastest on the day, just fractions off hit teammate's time and the time of Ralf Schumacher.

Schumacher was just over a tenth of a second off Badoer's time while working for the Grove-based team, and Williams test driver Marc Gene was just over a second off the Ferrari driver's time.

Renault is scheduled to join the test Wednesday.
