Jerez, Feb. 10, 2011: First day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro and ten other Formula 1 teams, working from today until Sunday at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit, in southern Spain.


Felipe Massa was at the wheel of the F150th Italia. The Brazilian driver’s programme focussed on finding the best set-up for the car, on increasing understanding of the Pirelli tyres’ behaviour, aerodynamic testing and starts. Despite endless red flags which were especially prevalent this afternoon, Felipe was able to complete the planned programme, with any technical problems affecting the car. He completed a total of 101 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.20.709, the fastest overall on the day.

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, again with Felipe Massa on track.
