Ferrari maintains its lead in Barcelona tests

Ferrari has dominated the first three days of the Barcelona test with Felipe Massa setting the best overall time of 1m21.506s. Kimi Raikkonen was fastest on the first two days before he handed over the work to Massa.

Red Bull Racing has, however, been making progress and Mark Webber was second fastest in his Renault-powered Red Bull, three-tenths slower than Massa but ahead of Jarno Trulli's Toyota, Heikki Kovalainen's Renault and Fernando Alonso's McLaren.

The times as ever are not particularly significant as the different teams were working on different programmes but the suggestion is that Ferrari may have increased its lead over the opposition since Bahrain.
