Barcelona : classification of the last testing day
Only 3 drivers have done a time lap while the others have only done some installation laps .
The winter testing has been completed and Fernando Alonso is heading to the first GP of the season in Melbourne Australia. Here's what he said after the last day:
"We had a good winter last season and we got in a good position, similar to Red Bull and other teams. We were there in the fight . This year I am very happy this winter, and I am as confident as last year. We're very close to Red Bull and other teams. It's up to us to be better than them in Melbourne, Malaysia and China. It will be played on small details, because I think that the performance of today's cars are very close. There is not one that is completely ahead of everybody, we just have to make our best.
The favorites? I think it will always be four teams: McLaren Mercedes, Red Bull Racing and Ferrari. Maybe there will also Renault and Williams . This year, they had a good winter. So it's very open to Australia. Hopefully we'll be able to fight for the podium and victory. In three or four races we'll have a somewhat clearer picture of the situation and hopefully we'll be there."
