Ferrari - Test T2 at Montmelò – 2016 March

Montmelò, 4 March –This morning marked the start of the final day of winter testing at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit. Sebastian Vettel was in action today for Scuderia Ferrari, first of all trying out the Halo safety device, put forward by the FIA as a means of providing additional head protection for drivers. Yesterday, his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen had debuted the device. Initial work this morning centred on the usual set-up work, starting off on the Medium tyres, before moving on to Soft, Super Soft and Ultra Soft. Sebastian completed 54 laps, the best in 1.22.852, set on the Super Soft. A few more hours of track time this afternoon will bring the T2 winter session to a close, the final time the cars will run prior to taking to the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne for the first Grand Prix of the 2016 season.
