Ferrari fastest on final day of pre-season F1 testing
Friday 10 February 2012
Ferrari finished Formula One's first pre-season test on a high note as Fernando Alonso was fastest in today's session.
The Spanish double world champion had a quickest lap of 1 minute, 18.877 seconds to go seven-tenths of a second faster than the field.
The Italians rebounded from a subdued start with the second fastest time this week among 2012 designs, although Alonso's running was restricted to 39 laps due to a hydraulics problem.
Jean-Eric Vergne of Toro Rosso was second ahead of defending world champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull, whose best lap was 1:19.606.
Lewis Hamilton was fourth for McLaren in front of Lotus' Romain Grosjean, whose quickest lap on Thursday has so far set the pace for the 2012 cars.
