Completed test winter of Scuderia Ferrari

27th February 2008
Today marked the end of winter testing for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro in preparation for the start of the World Championship, which gets underway on Sunday 16th March in Melbourne. Today both drivers - Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen - were out on track running different programmes. Felipe was working on set-up, using up the remaining kilometres of engine life in his car: he completed 49 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.22.286. Kimi had a race simulation on his agenda, which he completed despite several interruptions caused by red flags and one precautionary stop to carry out a check on the car at the start of the afternoon. By the end of the day, Kimi had done 80 laps, the quickest in 1.21.933. The Scuderia will next be on track on 6th March at Fiorano, where Luca Badoer will carry out the shakedown of the cars that will be used in the Australian Grand Prix.
