Feb.8 (Ferrari) Second day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in southern Spain.

Following on from yesterday, it was again Felipe Massa who was at the wheel of the F2012, as he continued working on data acquisition relating to car behaviour. Felipe completed a total of 95 laps, the fastest in a time of 1.20.454.

“These two days have been different to usual, at least compared to what we’ve been used to at the start of previous years,” explained the Brazilian when he met with journalists. “This car is packed with elements that need plenty of fine tuning and they are different to what we had on previous cars. We concentrated on setting up a lot of specific points and there is still a lot to do: as usual, some things work the way they should, others less so.”

Testing at this track continues tomorrow, when Fernando Alonso will be at the wheel of the new car.
