Apparently Ferrari's plans have changed!


Felipe Massa will actually drive for two days, on Monday and Tuesday, with Fernando Alonso driving on Wednesday, the final day of the test. This was an option that had already been put forward on the timetable set out by the engineers over the past few weeks: it means that Felipe will be able to provide immediate and detailed feedback in terms of a comparison between the F10 and the F60.

WhiteBlue wrote:Interesting development! It sounds as if Ferrari feel to be on the back foot. They now switch to Massa in order to evaluate the F10 compared to the F60. Alsoslow can't do that. So Massa must oblige.

I think it hae more to do with bad weather at Fiorano, where Massa was going to shake the F10 down before Valencia.

[quote]Having launched their 2010 car, the F10, it Italy on Thursday, Ferrari had intended for Massa to conduct a shakedown of the new car, coinciding with promotional filming for the Scuderia.

However, chilly weather conditions meant the Brazilian was unable to venture out on track as the Fiorano circuit was covered in a layer of ice. Plans to then conduct the shakedown on Friday were also put on hold due to the conditions.

Sorry to be so annoying, but don't we usually have a thread for each individual track where they're testing instead of a single one where its all lumped together?

And this isn't winter testing, it's Pre-Season testing.

With so little time and testmiles during the pre-season tests I wonder how presentative the times will be, and if teams would spend any time sandbagging.
And if they do, would it be beneficial?

I thought about opening a thread just for the first three testing days in Valencia but then it didn't make a lot of sense. With the new FOTA agreement pretty much all teams will attend the same tests. There will not be any Bahrain or Italian tests as we saw in the past. If you don't like the name feel free to make a request for name change to the moderators, I don't mind. I just thought winter testing describes it good enough.

My prediction for today is Rosberg crashes the car in an attempt to set a time MS can't beat in the afternoon.

Dont know why but I can feel it coming :)

or better still, F1-Direct

Then throw it into here, and you've got English live timing with commentary! 8)

Edit: hmm scrub that, F1-Direct is pretty slow in updating times compared to Motor21..
