Massa: “A lot of teams will be competitive”


Barcelona, 28 February – Felipe Massa’s day at the wheel of the F138 started the way last Friday had ended, with bad weather again affecting work at the Catalunya Circuit. The track, on the outskirts of Barcelona, is hosting the third and final winter test, which runs from today until Sunday. All the same, it was a positive day for the Ferrari man, because the weather was definitely a bit better, especially in the afternoon, when a few rays of sunshine appeared as the rain stopped, allowing the driver and team to complete the planned programme of a race simulation.

Review – 2013 Official Formula One Test in Barcelona


TEAMS SAMPLE PIRELLI’S WET-WEATHER TYRES IN BARCELONA
Barcelona, February 22, 2013 – The Formula One teams encountered wet weather for the first time this year on the final day of a four-day test at Barcelona: the second of three official pre-season tests. The other three days were dry, enabling the teams to run through the complete range of P Zero tyres – all of which are new for this year – on a circuit that they are all familiar with. However, some unusually cold conditions restricted the amount of meaningful data that could be accumulated. The final pre-season test of the year also takes place in Barcelona next week, from February 28 to March 3.

In the morning, when there were some dry moments, Jean-Eric Vergne did some aero work, while the afternoon was given over to assessing the Pirelli wet weather tyres, which like the 2013 slicks, are different to those used last year.

Exhaustive testing in Barcelona


For race fans, the main interest of winter testing tends to be how the cars are performing, but inside the paddock, the first concern is to ensure your new car runs reliably, before chasing fractions of a second. Therefore, taking a keen interest in proceedings here in Barcelona for the second test session of the year, is Scuderia Ferrari’s Head of Engines and Electronics, Luca Marmorini. The engine regulations may well have been frozen for several years now, effectively capping performance, but there are always new parameters that can affect the reliability of the V8s, even in their last year as Formula 1’s power provider. Scuderia Ferrari’s engine reliability has been second to none and Marmorini and his crew are keen to maintain that enviable record.

JEREZ TEST - DAY 2


Feb 6, 2013
The second day of testing in southern Spain went smoothly for Scuderia Toro Rosso as Daniel Ricciardo added a further 83 laps to the 70 he completed yesterday. With the usual proviso that lap times do not mean too much at testing, the Australian’s fastest lap puts him third out of twelve on the time sheet. The engineers carried out the first scan of the car in terms of set-up and the programme also included some long runs to have a first look at the car in race trim and generally, it was another positive day’s work. Tomorrow, Jean-Eric Vergne will have his first encounter with the new car, as he takes over from his team-mate for the final two days of this test.
