Massa Positive As Ferrari Join Barcelona Test Session

1 Mins read

Ferrari chose to wait until today to get their final four-day session of pre-season testing underway with Felipe Massa taking to the track in Barcelona.

The Brazilian completed 101 laps of the Circuit de Catalunya, and finished the day as the fifth fastest driver.

The F150° Italia (as it is know known) sported all the updates planned for the opening race in Australia, including the aero configuration and a new exhaust design.

“First impressions are positive,” said Massa, after his day in the car. “You can feel the effect of the new elements on the handling of the car, especially that of the exhausts. Today, we worked mainly on a back-to-back comparison of the various configurations, especially in the area of the front wing. Once again today we did a lot of kilometres, which is always a good thing.”

Tomorrow marks Massa’s final day of pre-season testing, and Fernando Alonso is back in the car for the final two days of this test.
