|22/01/09 :: Final testing day at Mugello circuit|
Fourth and final day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working again today at the Mugello International Circuit.|
Finally, the weather was not too bad today, which meant that, as from late morning, slick tyres could be used. Felipe Massa was thus able to run on a dry track, accumulating a large amount of data which will be analysed over the next few days.
Felipe completed a total of 103 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.23.981. The day's programme ended slightly ahead of schedule, a few minutes before the track was closed, because of a problem linked to the hydraulics.
"I am pleased with the way these past days have gone," commented the Brazilian at the end of the day. "Finally today, we were able to test the car in the dry continuously. First impressions are positive, even if it is obviously too early to say what level we are at, partly because we had no competitors here to compare ourselves with. However, if I was asked to give a verdict on this test, I would score it a strong eight for reliability, given that we have covered over 1500 kilometres. It's true a lot of that was in the wet, but given the conditions experienced in Portimao, I think the decision to come to Mugello was the right one."
