Another day in Barcelona

Rubens Barrichello topped the charts for day two of testing at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Barrichello set a time 1:18.928. Like Felipe Massa yesterday, Barrichello’s time was set on slicks.

Giancarlo Fisichella, also on slicks, nailed the second fastest time. The Force India driver managed a respectable 1:20.7 on the grooved rubber, as well.

Massa was next with a 1:20.283. David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg, Timo Glock and Nick Heidfeld rounded out the field.

Wednesday, Scuderia Toro Rosso is expected to bring its new car, and Michael Schumacher will drive the Ferrari...

Motorbike spill won’t keep Schumacher out of Ferrari test

Michael Schumacher should be clear to test for Ferrari Wednesday despite a crash while testing a Honda bike at the Lausitzring.

The seven-time world champion, who made his motorbike racing debut just a couple of weeks ago, was unhurt after losing control on a slow corner at the German track.

Schumacher said after that race he might not ride competitively again, but it doesn’t look like he’s ready to climb off the bike just yet.

Ferrari is planning to use Schumacher this week for slick tire testing.

Ferrari trying to find the leak

Ferrari is trying to figure out how an Italian magazine caught wind of the Scuderia’s radical new nose over two months prior to its debut.

Despite tighter security, a result of Ferrari’s experience in last year’s “Spygate” saga, Autosprint managed to break the story, with sketches, in February.

Swiss publication Blick reports an internal investigation is being carried out in Maranello. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
