Ferrari LogoSet-up and tyre work for Alonso

 

Sakhir, 28 February –Second day of the third and final pre-season test for Scuderia Ferrari and the ten other Formula 1 teams, taking place at Sakhir in Bahrain. Fernando Alonso got behind the wheel of the F14 T this morning to start working on car set-up, as well as running a tyre evaluation programme. The Spaniard used the Medium and Soft compounds, acquiring valuable data for the team, while also familiarising himself with the 2014 Pirelli rubber.

The best time over his 45 laps this morning was a 1.35.634, a few thousands off the quickest set by Sergio Perez in the Force India.

In the afternoon, the Scuderia will continue testing components on the F14 T and, depending how that work progresses, the second part of the afternoon could be used for long run tests.
