F60, alongside nine other teams testing here - the first time this year that all the teams have been present at the same time.
The Finnish driver worked on finding the best set-up for the car, on reliability and on a comparison between various aerodynamic solutions. Kimi covered a total of 81 laps, the quickest in a time of 1:20.908.
