"He [Schumi] continued with testing in the F399 while the team was
waiting for replacement parts for the F1-2000. He completed 13 laps
with the F399 with a fastest time of 1:27.129. His team mate Rubens
Barrichello concentrated on set up and tyre evaluations, driving a
F399, completing a total of 47 laps with a fastest time of 1:26.517."
Rubinho 0.6s faster then Schumi, now everyone say sorry to me and
I know it's only a testing session, and I know MS was putting more
effort in his F1-2000 laps, and I know MS did less laps than RB, and I
know I'm too big a RB fan to see things objectively, but I think
Rubinho might just surprise a lot of people and get more WC points
than the maestro.
