Maranello, 23 February - Third day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari at the Catalunya Circuit, near Barcelona.

The Brazilian driver got through all the key elements of the planned programme, completing a total of 84 laps, (nearly all of them on the Pirelli P Zero Hard tyres,) the fastest in a time of 1.24.771. At the end of the session, Felipe carried out a fuel scavenge test and stopped at the end of the pit lane.
