A good job has been done on the car with a lot of improvements. Even though these are only early days for testing, we have done plenty of laps, after Sebastian got through two good days of work.”

James Allison: “We had a better day in terms of reliability and with Kimi we managed a good number of tests. It was interesting to get his feedback on the handling characteristics of the SF15-T, when compared to last year’s car.”

Scuderia Ferrari’s third day of testing featured a changing of the guard on the driver front, as Kimi Raikkonen got behind the wheel. Today, the team’s attention has been focused on set-up work on the SF15-T: during the morning, the Finn completed 44 laps, setting the fastest time in 1.24.074. The track was damp in the early morning, which naturally affected the programmes of the various teams running today, but it looks like being a more straightforward afternoon. (ferrari.com)
