2014 Bahrain: Ferrari Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


Driver: Fernando Alonso Car: Ferrari F14 T Weather: air temperature 19/25°C, track temperature 20/30 °C. Sunny. Laps/Kms completed: 64/346 Best time: 1:37.879

First day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari and the ten other Formula 1 teams, working from today to Saturday at Bahrain’s Sakhir Circuit.

The second test session of the year got underway with Fernando Alonso back behind the wheel of the F14 T number 14 car. The team resumed the programme it began in Jerez two weeks ago, working on further checking of all aspects of the new power unit systems and some aerodynamic testing. Today, particular attention was paid to fine tuning the new brake by wire system, to optimise the balance of the car.

This first day went off without encountering any unexpected difficulties and Fernando was able to complete a total of 64 laps, the quickest in a time of 1:37.879.

"It’s nice to be driving again, especially when you have more reference points compared to the previous time, which means you get a better feeling for the car" - said Fernando to www.ferrari.com - "We are also at a track that is more representative, with normal temperatures, where it’s been easier to understand tyre behaviour. We are in a phase where we are discovering things and with every lap, we learn something new. For everyone, there is still a lot to do to be well prepared for Melbourne, so it will be important to make the most of every day we have available to us."

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, again with Fernando Alonso on track.
