6-Sep: On the final day of testing at Monza, Rubens Barrichello set the fastest time of the day ahead of Pedro de la Rosa and Mika Salo.
9 teams were present (with Jordan concluding their testing yesterday). 14 drivers set lap times with Rubens Barrichello covering the most number of laps with 50 followed by Jarno Trulli with 49 laps and Williams test driver Antonio Pizzonia with 44 laps.
Once again the weather interrupted the normal proceedings as overnight rain kept the track damp until mid-morning and the teams only had a couple of hours of dry running as the session ended at 12:30 PM.
There were several red flag incidents with Montoya going off and damaging his car, both Trulli and Button suffering engine failures and Pedro de la Rosa stopping on the track with a mechanical problem.
Weather conditions were damp to dry with air temperature reaching 22 degrees and track temperatures reaching 30 degrees.

Team Principal Peter Sauber said: "This is an important step for SAUBER PETRONAS to ensure technical continuity and the competitiveness of the team. We began our collaboration with Bridgestone in 1999, and it has been very successful ever since. Bridgestone has proven to be a reliable partner, providing SAUBER PETRONAS with very competitive tyres, and I am confident that our partnership will continue to be successful."

2-Sep: Minardi's boss Paul Stoddart has confirmed that Alex Yoong will take back his seat for the Italian Grand Prix after being replaced for the past 2 races by Anthony Davidson due to poor form. Stoddard praised Davidson for his efforts and hinted that he could be back with the team next year and said "Unfortunately, it was a two-race deal and Alex Yoong will be back for Monza but I wouldn't rule out Anthony driving for us next year - he's certainly done enough to justify his place in F1."
As for Yoong, Stoddard has also confirmed that the Malaysian won't be driving for the team next year but will still be involved with the team and said "Alex will be involved with us next year, he won't be racing but he will be involved with the team next year. 
I'm a bit funny with drivers. Once they've driven for me, they sort of become a bit of the family. If Alex can get something else that he wants to do then I'll help and support him to do that."

Minardi will be offering Russian driver Sergei Zlobin a test in their car at Ferrari's Fiorano track this week. It comes as part of a sponsorship deal with Russian Gas giant Gazprom.
