Last exam ahead

Maranello, 24 February - The Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro is setting up the last details regarding the preparation for the fourth and last test session with the 2010 F1 season ahead, starting tomorrow at the Circuit de Catalunya, near Barcelona. During the Scuderia's test programme Fernando Alonso will sit behind the wheel tomorrow and on Friday, while Felipe Massa will take over as of Saturday.

The team will use a new chassis, with the number 283. The cars the Scuderia will have available at the start of the season will therefore be complete: chassis 281 debuted in Valencia, followed by number 282 during the second session in Jerez de la Frontera.

Lots of tension ahead of the last test session: maybe this will be the occasion when all the teams will be present on the track in their definite form for the first race and maybe we'll get an idea about the real performance on the track, because this will also be the last occasion to test with little fuel loads on board with the new qualifyings in sight. Someone already did it last week, but now this is really the last exam.
