Felipe's last tests at Sakhir circuit


Circuit: Bahrain International Circuit - 5.412 km
Driver: Felipe Massa
Car: Ferrari F60
Weather: air temperature 19/25 C, track temperature 20/31 C. Sunny and very windy.

Today saw the conclusion of this test session at the Sakhir Circuit in Bahrain, where Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro was testing alongside BMW and Toyota.

The task of bringing the programme to a close fell to Felipe Massa. The Brazilian driver worked in great detail on various set-up options on the Ferrari F60, on experimenting with several aerodynamic solutions, as well as continuing with reliability work on both engine and gearbox. Apart from a few minor glitches, the most serious problem occurred at the start of the day when a faulty cable left Felipe stranded at the side of the track. However, the bulk of the planned workload was completed.

The day in figures was as follows: 113 laps completed by Felipe, the quickest in a time of 1.32.162.
