Commentary

BBC Sport:

  • Lotus on Twitter: “As everyone keeps asking for him, we’ve interrupted our tea and banter to send Kimi Raikkonen out again.”
  • Gary Anderson in Jerez: “Felipe Massa’s Ferrari made its first appearance at the top of the timesheets earlier this morning after two days of data-gathering. The car has actually been setting decent times all through the test but it doesn’t look as consistent as the Lotus. At the moment, the Ferrari has the same problem as the Red Bull – once the front washes away, the driver can’t get it back. Whereas the Lotus is much more pliable. However, it’s clear from the times he was setting and the pattern of his runs that for a lot of his laps on Wednesday, Lotus’s Romain Grosjean did not have a lot of fuel on board, and the fuel load has a dramatic effect on car behaviour.”

Autosport Live:

  • 12:00 Kimi Raikkonen is the latest driver to improve just before lunch, as he moves into fourth with a 1m19.539s.
  • 11:06 Word from Lotus is that there’s nothing to be alarmed about by Raikkonen’s lack of action – the team is just making small tweaks to get the Finn settled in the E21.

  1. I hate how misleading these times can be. I wish he was closer to the best time.
