4th March 2009
Jerez de la Frontera, 4 March - Kimi Raikkonen took to the track for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro on this fourth day of a five day test session, featuring eight teams at the Jerez circuit. The Finn began lapping early in the day, when the skies were overcast and a gusty wind was blowing. After the lunchbreak, there was a problem with the hydraulic system that took the mechanics quite a while to fix. Once it was sorted, Kimi went back on track, doing four runs and a pit stop practice. Michael Schumacher arrived in Jerez yesterday and again today, he watched the session from the garage. Kimi Raikkonen will be on track for the Scuderia again tomorrow. Today's classification is as follows: Alonso (Renault), 1.19.945 (130 laps) Raikkonen (Ferrari), 1.20.250 (105) Heidfeld (BMW), 1.20.520 (99) Trulli (Toyota), 1.20.540 (131) Webber (Red Bull), 1.20.894 (107) Nakajima (Williams), 1.20.948 (83) Hamilton (McLaren), 1.21.302 (70) Sutil (Force India), 1.21.411 (79
