Ferrari announce driver schedule for all tests

Feb.1 (Ferrari) The programme has been established for Ferrari drivers in the three forthcoming official F1  test sessions which take place prior to the Australian Grand Prix.

In Jerez, Felipe Massa will begin the development work, with Fernando Alonso closing the test.
At the first Barcelona test, (21-24 February) it will be the Spaniard who drives for the first two days, with Massa taking over for the final two.
At the second session at the Catalunya Circuit (1-4 March) the driver order will be reversed with Massa followed by Alonso in the cockpit.

Meanwhile the weather forecast for this week in the Maranello area is not very encouraging for the team, with predictions of snow and very low temperatures.

This means there is a real doubt as to whether Ferrari will be able to carry out any promotional filming at the Fiorano track prior to heading for Jerez de la Frontera.

It’s a very long journey from Andalusia to the Emilia region and the departure of the car transporter with the race-car on board cannot be delayed any later than the afternoon of the fourth.
