A further 500 kilometers to the F2012, the threshold of 250 laps, which equates more than 1,300 kilometer, over the last three days at Mugello. After the rain on Tuesday, the second issue of the proof came in the form of an off Fernando Alonso around noon. It was in turn 12, damage to the lower left corner of the car and the front wing, but more importantly, the cost of incidents two hours on the job. “First of all I want to, want to reassure my family and friends: I’m fine, nothing happens after the collision with the guardrail to seven miles per hour,” said Spanish with a touch of irony when he was late to reporters days . “We have lost this time tomorrow afternoon in terms of quantity, because the last few miles of what we had planned, but not in terms of quality, the route was changed today afternoon, especially as the wind.
“But I’m very happy with these three test days,” added Ferdinand. “The feeling I got after the test is positive. We have a few small, and I stress the word, the aerodynamic updates that the answer is that we expect to produce and that’s the good news I’m sure for the means future short and long term. This means that what we see in the factory in Maranello is also mounted on the rails. We have also worked in other areas, especially the tires, so that short and long runs on the Set-up and the outputs to examine in view of the fact that they also to a new connection.
“I can not say whether today at Mugello, we can say that they cede ground well done, but in Barcelona, ??we will give hope to important updates, and that we can begin to bridge the gap to us to bridge from existing equipment to the bridge above, “said Alonso. “We have decided to support the development of the time in a wind tunnel in place in advance of any new part of this promotion test. Of course it would be nice to be able to test all updates on the first track, but it is good that we have all sorts of development potential for each component. Barcelona is a very important moment of the season, but not decisive. not a case of a sudden we are back in pole position because there is no magic button. We have to fight not start by . closer to Q3 and reach the top six, and then continue with the development in the next race, a step forward in Monaco, Canada and Valencia That’s the only way we view the pursuit of these seven or nineteenth – it is difficult to see how far we are at the base of the first race – what separates us from the leaders Sure, if I do not deny, that next week is important: we can not afford to fight in Q3, because we are fighting for the title. . “
When asked about the configuration of the new exhaust system first tried to assess today, the first reaction was briefly Fernando: “There is no difference in terms of down time over the one I tried on Tuesday,” before you get closer, “The exhaust pipe is not critical field this year in fact, that is to be seen so far won the car with different configurations and won in Bahrain, for example, Red Bull with downward exhaust, but the fastest car on the track, the Lotus, the straight . condemn “
The return to the testing during the season, even if only one session, which was actually removed from the winter program, as a good thing to see was the driver of the Scuderia. “Is I prefer this schedule from last year that after the first race, much more the car and what you can do the changes that have to do means to them,” said Alonso. “In fact, for me, more tests during the season, I do say it was a pleasure to once again have to drive this route. Here in the neighborhood worth more than a hundred other places, regardless of one day here, a year’s worth worth working in the simulator, at least as far as I’m concerned. “
Fernando back on the ground Tuesday in Fiorano, but as a spectator on this occasion. The Oviedo drivers participating in the event that the 30th Anniversary of the death of Gilles Villeneuve, whose son Jacques is a run at the wheel of the 312 T4 reminds his father took part in 1979. He has a day to be found in the same color red that the time when Jacques Villeneuve, his teammate for the final Grand Prix of the 2004 season with Renault.
