Massa to get first Ferrari run

Felipe Massa to debut the 2013 Ferrari in pre-season testing
Ferrari has confirmed that Felipe Massa will be given the honour of debuting its 2013 F1 challenger when it hits the track at Jerez next month.

The Brazilian will be in action for the opening three days of the test in Spain before handing the car over to Pedro de la Rosa – who will then make his debut for the Scuderia on the final day of running having signed up to a test and development role earlier this month.

Fernando Alonso meanwhile will miss the first test of the year to 'intensify his physical training' before sampling the new car for the first time in Barcelona.

Alonso will spend the first three days of the test, which starts on 19 February, on track before Massa then drives on the final day, with the duo then having two days each on track in the final test – which again takes place in Barcelona from 28 February.

De la Rosa meanwhile has visited the Ferrari base at Maranello for a seat-fitting and will shortly begin work in the team's simulator to work on preparations for the new season.
