The car from Maranello sports some modification as far as the body is concerned, especially visible in the area of the exhaust. The Team's work will be carried out on the basis what could have been seen at Bahrain: set up work in the morning with a run of 6/8 laps and endurance tests in the afternoon.
Felipe Massa gave the Ferrari F60 its debut at this track. The Brazilian driver worked on finding the best set-up on the car and on reliability testing. By the end of the day, Felipe had covered 63 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.20.330. The work schedule was interrupted by several red flag stoppages, as well as a long break, shortly after midday, following an off-track excursion, although the car was not damaged.
Testing at this track continues tomorrow, again with Massa on track.
