Fernando Alonso took to the track today. This morning, the Spaniard worked on the set-up of the F2012 and on aerodynamics, while in the afternoon, he did a Grand Prix simulation that was completed without any problems arising. The chequered flag came out half an hour after the usual 5pm finish, as it was decided to extend the session by thirty minutes to make up for the time lost because of fog hanging over the track this morning.

By the end, Fernando had completed 125 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.23.447. The Scuderia continues testing again tomorrow, 3 March, still at the Catalunya Circuit, with Felipe Massa back on track.
