Alonso gets 'virtual' taste of 2014 car

Fernando Alonso completed his 2013 work by getting his first taste of the 2014 action as he spent time in the Ferrari simulator.

The double World Champion was back at the team's headquarters in Maranello this week and got a brief introduction into the new challenger, which will sport the new V6 turbe power units, in the simulator.

"I'm pleased with the way the day on the simulator went," the Spaniard told the official Ferrari website. "We managed to get through everything on the programme that we had in the pipeline.

"It was nice to be driving again, even if only in a virtual way. We went through a lot of ideas with the engineers: we are only at the start of a learning process which is moving forward all the time and it's nice to be able to contribute to it."

Alonso is now officially on a break when it comes to his "driving duties" for 2013 as he will not take part in next week's Pirelli tyre test in Bahrain as Pedro de la Rosa and Jules Bianchi will be in the cockpit of the Ferrari.
