Maranello, 9 February - Third day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in southern Spain.
Fernando Alonso made his debut at the wheel of the F2012 today. The Spanish driver continued with the task of gathering data on the behaviour of the new car, covering a total of 67 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.20.412. An hydraulic problem halfway through the morning cost him ninety minutes of track time, but this was the only hitch of the day.
Testing at this track ends tomorrow, when, once again, Fernando Alonso will be at the wheel of the F2012.
