Director of Engineering, Pat Fry: “Our objective is the same”
Sakhir, 21 February –Third day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. A telemetry glitch slowed Kimi Raikkonen’s progress in the morning, but in the second part of the day, the Finn managed to put in a good number of laps.
However, the team still aims to get through the planned programme, trying to make the most of the time available tomorrow. “We will try to do our utmost to acquire the mass of data we want. Ideally, we don’t want to change our operational plan for next week’s test.” Talking to journalists, Fry was asked the usual question about the state of play among the teams.
“It’s hard to say where we are. We knew we’d be facing a very complicated winter with a lot of unknown factors. That was the case, but in Maranello we have done a lot of work and I can see that it’s difficult for everyone to move forward on the development front with so many new systems and so little time to test them.”
