While Ferrari’s engineers put the finishing touches to the Italian team’s 2012 car ahead of its launch and test debut next month, drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa will be intensifying their own preparations at a pre-season training camp in the Canary Islands.

Alonso and Massa spent Tuesday at Ferrari's base in Maranello having seat fittings in the new car and meeting team principal Stefano Domenicali and other engineers to discuss its development. They will now jet off to the island of Lanzarote for a spot of physical training, alongside Ferrari young drivers Jules Bianchi and Davide Rigon.

The duo will return to Italy next week for the unveiling of the new car, which takes place at Fiorano on February 3. They are then expected to begin on-track preparations at the multi-team winter test at Jerez, Spain, from February 7-10.
