Third day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, in southern Spain. For the third consecutive day, Felipe Massa was at the wheel of the F138, getting through the planned programme established before the start of the test, without any problems.
In the first part of the day, the Brazilian completed the work which began yesterday and from mid-morning onwards, moved on to a comparison of the various compounds supplied by Pirelli. Back on track after the lunch break, Felipe had a harmless spin and was thus able to end the day, concentrating on long run tests.
The total number of laps completed was 85, with a best time of 1.17.879.
Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, with Pedro De la Rosa making his debut.
