Maranello, 17th February
Circuit: Bahrain International Circuit - 5.412 km

Once again today at Sakhir, Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro continued with the test session that began at this track last week, alongside BMW and Toyota.
On Kimi Raikkonen's programme was evaluation of various set up options on the Ferrari F60, of the Bridgestone tyres available and on development of new components. A problem with the cooling element of the energy recovery system, shortly after 11.30, delayed the proramme as it lead to a three hour stop. Once it was fixed Kimi concentrated on long runs interspersed with pit stops. Yet again the day ended with practice starts on the grid.
The day in figures is as follows: 107 laps completed by Kimi, the quickest in a time of 1.32.102.
The Scuderia continues testing at this circuit tomorrow, when Felipe Massa will return to the track.
