Mechanical problems limit Ferrari test

1 Mins read

Ferrari were hampered by a mechanical problem and the bad weather which forced them to change their testing schedule for Day 2 of the second Jerez test session.

Felipe Massa was in the car today, completing 92 laps before the team turned its attention to training for race procedures like pit stops.

The Brazilian was philosophical about the tricky weather conditions, and believed that Ferrari were in a good position.  “Yesterday and today the track was almost always completely wet. Nevertheless driving many kilometres was useful for the reliability and for fixing some small problems. And we are all in the same boat, so we shouldn't complain. Obviously those who didn't have many possibilities to drive on the dry, might be penalised, because there are only six days of testing left. From this point of view I'm really happy that our team has done more laps than any other, but obviously I hope that we'll have sun in Barcelona!”

When quizzed further about his competitors, Felipe was expected to be racing against the usual suspects in the coming season.  “I'd say that Red Bull has a good car, but that's no surprise considering how they concluded last season. I expect to fight against them, McLaren and Mercedes, but it's still too early to say anything concrete. For now we're concentrating on our work.”
