Car: Ferrari F14 T
Weather: air temperature 5/18°C, track temperature 6/22 °C. Sunny
Laps/Kms completed: 58/257

Fernando Alonso made his first on-track appearance of the season at the wheel of the F14 T on the penultimate day of testing at Jerez de la Frontera.

It didn’t take long for Fernando to get to grips with the new car. In the morning, he worked on a programme centred on aerodynamic mapping measurement, while in the afternoon work on development continued with particular attention paid to car set-up. It was another profitable day for the Scuderia.

Alonso completed a total of 58 laps, the fastest in a time of 1:25.495.

“It’s always nice to be driving again, especially in front of your home crowd” – said Fernando to www.ferrari.com – “I’ve missed it for a few months now, even if I’ve spent hours in the simulator in Maranello and the feeling I got from the track was as exciting as ever. Now we have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have a very big potential to make progress and that’s encouraging.”

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, the fourth and final day of work at the Jerez circuit with Fernando Alonso.
