Fernando Alonso shook down the new Ferrari F150 following its launch this morning.

Alonso drove the car around the team’s Fiorano test track.

He said he expects the new car to suit him better than last year’s F10 having now spent a year with the team:

When I arrived in 2010 I found a very different car compared to the one I had driven before. This year I contributed and I think that also my driving style had an influence on the development. Now I also know the people in my team and I?ve got a good relationship with them and I?m always putting them under pressure.
