Fernando Alonso

Second day of testing in Barcelona

Circuit: Catalunya circuit, Montmelò – 4.655 km
Driver: Fernando Alonso
Car: Ferrari F138
Weather: air temperature 8/11°C, track temperature 8/12 °C. Cloudy
Laps/Kms completed: 102/475
Best time: 1:27.878

With three days of testing remaining, Fernando Alonso took to the track for Scuderia Ferrari at the Catalunya Circuit. Because of bad weather, the track stayed damp and slippery all day, with the exception of a couple of hours in the early afternoon, when the lack of rain meant the teams were able to run on a dry track.

In the morning, Fernando worked through a packed programme, consisting of aerodynamic tests and assessing some mechanical components, running up to the lunch break on intermediate tyres.

After the break, the team completed its aerodynamic testing and then continued with a second race simulation, using both dry and rain tyres. In the end, Fernando had to come back to the garage and halt the simulation because of a red flag.

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, when Felipe Massa will be back behind the wheel for the final time before the start of the 2013 Championship.
