Ricard in France on Thursday, as teams completed their preparations for
the Monaco Grand Prix.

The Ferrari driver eclipsed Lewis
Hamilton’s best effort from the first day to set a fastest lap of one
minute 05.381 seconds – less than one tenth of a second ahead of
McLaren’s Heikki Kovalainen.

Robert Kubica, keen to get his team
back fighting McLaren and Ferrari after a disappointing Turkish Grand
Prix, was third quickest – just more than four tenths behind Kovalainen.

Coulthard continued to show the improving form of Red Bull Racing’s RB4
to set the fourth fastest time, ahead of Jenson Button in the Honda
Racing RA108 and Sebastien Bourdais in the new STR3.

Toro Rosso will have taken great heart from the performance of the
STR3, which was able to complete a race distance in the afternoon ahead
of its scheduled debut in the Monaco Grand Prix.

Jarno Trulli
was seventh fastest, ahead of Nelson Piquet and Kazuki Nakajima. Force
India duo Adrian Sutil and Giancarlo Fisichella were at the bottom of
the timesheets after sharing their car over the day.

The day marked one of those rare occasions when a test was not interrupted by red flags.

test continues tomorrow using a different configuration of the Paul
Ricard circuit that will simulate the low-downforce settings required
for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Kimi Raikkonen continued with preparations for the Monaco Grand Prix,
again working on settings for the F2008 and on development of new
aerodynamic solutions for high downforce circuits. The planned
programme for these past two days was completed with no technical

The day in figures is as follows: 102 laps completed, the quickest in a time of 1.05.381.

at this circuit, with its configuration modified to replicate some
characteristics of a track like Montreal, continues tomorrow, when
Felipe Massa takes over behind the wheel.

It was another long day for Kimi, but finishing on top the the table this time! It looks good for the Monaco Grand Prix and they’ll hopefully have some good data from the past two days. Now we’ll have to see how they’ll do on the track layout for the Canadian Grand Prix tomorrow, with Felipe taking over testing duties. I bet Kimi would rather be enjoying a lie in the mornings but he knows that there’s a lot of work to do (and we support you through it!)

Here is another set of wallpapers from today’s test – the best shots of Kimi for your desktop.
