Jerez, Day 3: Ferrari test report
"It’s always nice to be driving again"
Fernando Alonso made his first on-track appearance of the season at the wheel of the F14 T on the penultimate day of testing at Jerez de la Frontera.
It didn’t take long for Fernando to get to grips with the new car. In the morning, he worked on a programme centred on aerodynamic mapping measurement, while in the afternoon work on development continued with particular attention paid to car set-up. It was another profitable day for the Scuderia.
Alonso completed a total of 58 laps, the fastest in a time of 1:25.495.
“It’s always nice to be driving again, especially in front of your home crowd” – said Fernando to ferrari.com – “I’ve missed it for a few months now, even if I’ve spent hours in the simulator in Maranello and the feeling I got from the track was as exciting as ever. Now we have a lot of work ahead of us, but we have a very big potential to make progress and that’s encouraging.”
Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, the fourth and final day of work at the Jerez circuit with Fernando Alonso.
