Barcelona II : classification of the 4th testing day + Alonso's thoughts
Lotus Renault GP
Red Bull Racing
Marussia Virgin Racing
After this day of testing Fernando Alonso held to support the families of victims of the tsunami that occurred in Japan: "
Apart from the problems we encounter in F1, such as difficulty coping in F1, the complexity of materials , we realize that there are more important things, such as natural disasters, and my thoughts are for the victims and families residents in Japan."
Then he went back on the agenda of the day:
"To know where we are located opposite the other, we should expect next March 26 in Melbourne in qualifying and racing. But we have no doubt the 150 ° Italia will be very competitive.
The car has once again proved its true potential. We're very happy. We've made some changes, which were really helpful during our race simulations, during which the lap times were quite reasonable."
Where are we compared to the others? As already stated, we will know in Melbourne, and not before. The use of tires, fuel costs, the program of the day [...] here is something completely distorting a piece of time. From the beginning of these tests, we have always focused on our own work, trying to improve the car and stay calm. In 15 days we will see the fruits of our efforts this offseason."
