Fernando Alonso, Ferrari, Abu Dhabi Pirelli testFernando Alonso is confident that Ferrari will have no problem adapting to the new-for-2011 Pirelli rubber after trying the tyres for the first time in today's test in Abu Dhabi.
The Spaniard completed 105 laps of the Yas Marina circuit, and does not expect Ferrari to have to make major changes to its new car to suit the tyre characteristics.
"Overall, I am quite happy with the behaviour of the tyres," he said. "They are not too different to the previous manufacturer [Bridgestone] so in a way I think it will be a very smooth transition with no big drama."
The two-time world champion added that he did not find it difficult to tweak the car's set-up to get the best out of the Pirellis, declaring himself happy with progress.
"For us, it was not a big change," he said. "There were a few set-up changes to the car to accommodate the tyres and try to understand the two types of tyres that Pirelli brought here. It was okay."
Que su adaptacion a la Pirelli sera suave y para nada traumatica. Que no dista mucho de las Brigestone y basta con hacer pequeños cambios en el setup para hacerse con ellos.
En general esta bastante contento con ellos.
Massa , dijo ayer que se encontraba muy comodo con ellos tambien.
No dista mucho del resto de declaraciones de los demas pilotos ( salvoRosberg que parece que sufrio un trauma con ellos ) , pero no estoy del todo seguro si este sera el neumatico definitivo o será el que veamos en Febrero.
Al final , resulto merecer la pena.
