Pirelli has continued testing its 2011 Formula 1 rubber at Mugello today, with ex-Mercedes reserve driver Nick Heidfeld at the wheel.
The Italian tyre manufacturer is using a 2009 Toyota TF109, run by Toyota Motorsport, as its test mule and is due to complete its first two-day test at 1700 (UK time).
AUTOSPORT understands that the first two-day test of the rubber has been productive, with valuable data accumulated for the tyres that have not run on F1 machinery before.
