Ferrari review Day 2 of 2014 Preseason testing at Jerez

Circuit: Jerez circuit – 4.428 km
Driver: Kimi Raikkonen
Car: Ferrari F14 T
Weather: air temperature 9/14°C, track temperature 10/15 °C. Light rain in the morning, sunny and cloudy in the afternoon.
Laps/Kms completed: 47/208
Best time: 1:24.812

Second day of testing at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit for Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the F14 T.

Because of the wet start to the day, the morning programme began with the testing requested by Pirelli, relating to development of their wet weather tyres. The Scuderia was quickly able to assess the intermediate tyres, thus making the most of the time remaining and the progressively drying track to begin work on the car in preparation for the afternoon’s programme.

By the end of the day, Raikkonen had managed to complete a total of 47 laps, the fastest in a time of 1.24.812. He continued the task of checking the car’s functionality as well as trying a few set-up changes.

“Every time we go out on track we learn something new” – said Kimi to – “This week the times don’t matter and the only thing that does is to do a good number of laps without any problems and fortunately, we have managed that on both days. The team is working hard and at the next test in Bahrain, we will continue to improve.”

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, when Fernando Alonso will make his season debut on track.
