Another day of sun allowed the team to complete an intensive programme of work without problems.

In the morning, Fernando made progress with the development of the F138, working on different car set-ups and comparisons between the various types of tyre – including some experimental ones brought to the Circuit de Catalunya by Pirelli.

In the afternoon the team continued with tyre comparisons before switching the focus to checking some aerodynamic solutions and ending the day with some pit-stop simulations.

The next on-track action is scheduled for Friday 15 March at Melbourne’s Albert Park, when the curtain opens on the first session of free practice for the Australian Grand Prix.
