Fire is no laughing matter!
Cheste, 3 February – Felipe Massa’s first test day with the Ferrari 150° Italia certainly did not get off to the kind of start he would have wanted. As he was coming to the end of his first run of laps, the Brazilian had to park at the side of the track, with an oil leak caused by a broken clamp.
Unfortunately the lubricant ended up on the exhausts which led to a small fire breaking out and that caused some damage to the car. The mechanics immediately set to work on repairing the damage, but it is unlikely that the car will be back on track much before 3 in the afternoon.
