Bahrain Testing: Day 3

| Source: | | commentary |

A slightly more complicated morning than the previous two for the Ferrari F14 T, at the third day of testing for the Scuderia and ten other Formula 1 teams at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain.

On his first day, Kimi Raikkonen got off to a good start, carrying out aerodynamic tests, as well as working on set-up and doing some practice starts.

Then progress slowed as the team had to sort out a telemetry connection problem, which although trivial took up a lot of time. It is to be expected as Formula 1 embarks on an era with more emphasis on technology than ever before.

With no pressing need to chase performance, the team decided to have an in-depth look at the problem, so as to get the most out of the new systems, once the telemetry glitch had been sorted.

On the weather front, it’s another beautiful sunny day here and the wind has dropped to a gentle breeze since yesterday.
