Felipe Massa is much confident that Ferrari found the direction to get a much better car to drive for 2012 season. The Brazilian felt positive testing today at Barcelona and he set fifth fastest lap-time and covering 100+ laps.
“I think it’s definitely the direction we need to follow for these last days of testing we have, and I think today was a positive day, not so much in the morning but in the afternoon,” Massa told reporters.
“I have to say that now we are a little bit more positive because we found the direction to work and I’m sure now, having found the direction, we can see the development coming.
“In the afternoon we were able to do more than eight/nine timed laps consistently. The laps were very consistent and it was very positive. We still need to work a lot but at least we found the direction to get a much better car to drive, not just for laptime for also for consistency.”
“In the past we didn’t have so many directions to follow. This year we have so many directions, so many possibilities and the most important thing was to find the right one, and I’m sure we found it.” Massa said.
“I think more than five,” he said when asked how prepared Ferrari is on a scale of one to ten, “but there is still work to be done to be closer to where we want. But at least we made a good step to find the direction.”
