Massa in action at Portugal

By on

F1 and Ferrari both made their official debut today at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve, the new circuit near Portimão, in southern Portugal. On a day affected by strong winds, Felipe Massa continued with the work the team had initiated last week at Jerez, which centred on an endurance test of the engine and on evaluating a few technical solutions aimed at the forthcoming season, as well as looking into the best set-up on the car, when fitted with the new slick tyres.

Testing ended ahead of schedule, as Felipe was feeling unwell. Up to that point, the Brazilian driver had completed 36 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.32.926.

The Scuderia continues testing at this circuit tomorrow, when Luca Badoer and Marc Gene will take to the track.
