Ferrari has placed a number of key upgrades on its car for Thursday’s final day of testing in Mugello. However, Fernando Alonso now faces several hours in the pit lane as damage is repaired after an off-track excursion.
Following a fire in the pit lane for Sauber’s Sergio Pérez, Alonso caused the first red flag of the day as he left the circuit at Turn 12. It remains to been seen as to whether the moment caused damage or the Spaniard went off because of a mechanical problem.
Having begun running shortly after the green light came on and topping the timesheets, the Ferrari sports modified turning vanes on its sidepods – aiding air flow from the front wing – plus Red Bull-like exhaust exits.
The Scuderia is now pushing to repair its car in order to maximise the remaining running time. The action can be tracked through the GPUpdate.net Live Test Report.
UPDATE: Ferrari has confirmed to GPUpdate.net that Alonso went off-track because of a driver error, breaking his front wing in the process.
