Barcelona II : Felipe Massa quotes + Ferrari program
*Felipe Massa :
"In the morning, I did some testing on long distance testing both types of compounds for wet weather with different settings to find the best balance on the car, and in the afternoon, I was able to complete a race simulation. The car has behaved well at all times, regardless of track conditions, and I am delighted because, in spite of the excessive tire wear, it was interesting to understand the behavior of the F138."
"It is difficult to understand what is the hierarchy, it is too early to say where are the others and where we are, but this is easy to say, it is that there are many competitive teams. My time seemed good and in the afternoon, when I put the dry tires while the track was still a little wet, I was among the fastest. When it started to dry, I arrived at the end of my simulation with very worn tires, I couldn't improve.
We have reached an important step : we conducted a simulation run without problem. Concerning tyres, it is true that they degrade quickly but this is normal. We know that the tires have changed and have been studied for it to increase the number of race refuelling but honestly, except in some cases, I think there will only be one more pitstop than last year."
