Felipe Massa was the fastest man of the day at Jerez, topping the timesheet and going more than 8 tenths quicker than Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes. The latter however completed a massive 148 laps after two dreadful days for the team.
Sebastian Vettel also enjoyed his first day of testing as he completed 102 laps and finished 3rd quickest, ahead of Raikkonen and Vergne.
James Rossiter on the other hand overcooked his pitstop entry a bit in the morning, bumping into the front jack man of the Force India team. Luckily, the mechanic remained unhurt and testing could continue as usual.
