Classification of the 2nd testing day + Massa's thoughts
Red Bull Racing
Marussia Virgin Racing
Lotus Renault GP
and here is the thoughts of Felipe Massa after this 2nd day in Jerez :
"During the two days I have been able to complete the program we had planned. Today, we tried four types of tires Pirelli brought here and we were able to collect lots of data. There is much work to go in understanding the behavior of tires and then to find the right settings on the car,"said Felipe Massa to the media today.
"The time? It's always better to be fit, although this does not mean much. From here until the first race, a lot will change, our car and that of others. We are trying to focus on our own work, without bothering about what our opponents. The important thing is to understand in what direction we should go and how to solve our problems. The first race in Bahrain is still very long. Michael [Schumacher ] fastest today? Well. it's not exactly a novelty for him to occupy this position, given everything he has earned in his career.
There is great interest this season for the new features introduced, such as adjustable rear wing and KERS, which is not really something new for Ferrari drivers . "We must try to understand the behavior of the car as much as possible, but clearly, as regards the rear wing, we do not know yet how it will work in a passing maneuver. So it is important to have a reliable car to take advantage of the available time."
