Second day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari and the other Formula 1 teams at the Yas Marina circuit, located near the Abu Dhabi theme park, dedicated to the Maranello marque.

Once again today, Jules Bianchi took to the track for Ferrari. The Frenchman worked on two main areas: new components linked to engine management and an evaluation of the experimental tyres brought here by Pirelli.

By the end of the day, Bianchi completed a total of 91 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.40.279.

“It was another good day of testing,” said Jules at the end of the day. “I was able to do a lot of kilometres and so we were able to complete all the planned programme, while I was also able to improve on my lap time from yesterday. It’s valuable work for the team, because we have accumulated a lot of data which will be important for the development of the 2012 car.”

Testing at this circuit ends tomorrow, again with the French driver on track for the Scuderia.
