Paul Ricard Test

25th January 2016
Kimi pleased at the end of his Pirelli wet tyre test

Scuderia Ferrari stopped work with over an hour to go to the track closure at the end of the first day of wet weather tyre testing, organised by Pirelli at the Paul Ricard circuit. Kimi Raikkonen completed 99 laps at the wheel of an SF15-T, working his way through all the sets made available by the Italian supplier. “It was like a normal day of testing,” commented the Finn at the end of the session.

“I think it’s too early to say much about these prototype tyres, but it was a very useful session, because everyone was running under the same conditions. It’s been a while since we’ve driven and, even if it was just one day, there’s always something you can learn from it.” Tomorrow, the Scuderia will be back on track, with Sebastian Vettel at the wheel for the second and final day of the test.
