Alonso not concerned about engine breakdown

The Chinese GP Ferrari activities delayed on free practice session as Alonso faced an Engine problem. The Two times world champion just completed only six laps in the Friday’s first practice session however although he had less running on Friday he is not too concerned.

Talking regarding First free practice sessions Alonso told: Clearly I’m not happy to have had an engine failure, but I’m not the slightest bit worried by it. The Formula 1 engine I had this morning was the one we had changed after qualifying in Bahrain and we knew that, sooner or later, it could break. It happened today, but it won’t have much effect on our original engine management plan. We also did various tests of new aerodynamic components, such as the rear wing. It is pointless looking at today’s time sheet, because each team follows its own work programme and that makes it impossible to compare the times. We stuck to our plan and we are pretty happy with what we achieved. I think we will be competitive at this track.

Ferrari co-driver Felipe Massa said: I am satisfied with the way this free practice day went. We did a lot of kilometers, concentrating mainly on preparing the car for Sunday’s race. We also evaluated new aerodynamic components, not just for this race, but also for mid-term development, gathering significant data which will now be analysed by the engineers. On top of that, we managed to do a comparison between the two types of tyre that Bridgestone has brought here. I think several teams are going to be very competitive: not just McLaren and Red Bull, but also Mercedes who have made a step forward. Let’s hope we will be in the fight with them.
