FORMULA 1: FERRARI PREPARES TO SAVE SEASON IN MUGELLO TEST.


Ferrari head into a major Formula 1 test this week knowing it could make or break their season.
Fernando Alonso has won one of the first four races, but Ferrari have been uncompetitive and will try out new parts they hope will improve their car.

Team boss Stefano Domenicali said it was clear that they must step up a gear, right from the next race

The test, at Ferrari's Mugello test track in Italy, will feature 11 of 12 teams with struggling HRT staying away to concentrate on the relocation of their factory to Madrid.

Alonso lies fifth in the championship after the first four races of the season - thanks largely to an unexpected victory in mixed conditions in Malaysia.

The car's overall performance has not been up to Ferrari's usual standards - the Spaniard has not qualified higher than ninth and he finished the other three races in fifth, ninth and seventh places.
