Kimi Raikkonen: “It’s not that different from Jerez, we don’t know about the fuel other cars had, and some of them were on soft tyres. We keep doing our stuff, have made our plan and try to follow it. The car is a completely different story from last year’s, we’ve still got a long way
ahead of us but the team is working well and has produced a very nice car”.

James Allison: “Overall we are content with the day, happy because the work we’ve been doing in learning how the car responds to set-up changes was very satisfactory, less happy with the laps count for the day. I hope that in the remaining days we get some more mileage under our
belt”.

Midday Report

This is the first of four days testing for Scuderia Ferrari at Montmelò’s Catalunya circuit, which, as usual, will play host to the first European round of the Formula One season. With just over 20 days to go to the start of the championship, Kimi Raikkonen is at the wheel of the SF15-T.

The Finn is working on set-up testing, long runs and practice starts. For much of the morning, he was second fastest, before taking the break earlier than planned, so that the mechanics could carry out some checks on the car. This afternoon, Scuderia Ferrari will continue with the programme, which includes trying various tyre compounds.
