Third day of testing for Scuderia Ferrari and the first for Kimi Raikkonen, back at the wheel of F14 T number 7.

  • Circuit: Sakhir circuit – 5.412 km
  • Driver: Kimi Raikkonen
  • Car: Ferrari F14 T
  • Weather: air temperature 21/27°C, track temperature 22/32 °C. Sunny.
  • Laps/Kms completed: 44/238
  • Best time: 1:37.476

The day began with further aerodynamic work, as well as some set-up evaluation and practice starts from the pit lane. After 12 laps, the team encountered a problem with the data connection to the telemetry, which involved recalibrating and reactivating the system. The programme then resumed and ran more effectively in the afternoon as the team continued to concentrate mainly on set-up work.

“We didn’t do as many kilometres as we had been hoping for because even though the problem was a minor one, it still took a while to fix” – said Kimi.

“It shows how complicated these new systems are, but in the afternoon we managed to run consistently. It was useful in terms of getting used to the environment inside the cockpit, after the Jerez test, and to check some settings relating to the balance of the car.”
