Bahrain - testing could proceed as normal

13th February 2009
Maranello, 13th February Circuit: Bahrain International Circuit - 5.412 km Driver: Kimi Raikkonen Car: Ferrari F60 Weather: air temperature 16/21 °C, track temperature 16/29 °C. Sunny with hazy skies at the Sakhir circuit, in Bahrain. After two days affected by poor visibility, finally the weather in Bahrain improved enough so that this day of testing could proceed as normal. Therefore, Kimi Raikkonen, who was unable to do anything at all yesterday, managed to get his first run in the Ferrari F60 on a dry track, even if it was still very dirty because of a covering of sand in the first hours of the morning. Kimi concentrated mainly on finding the best set-up for the car and covered a total of 105 laps, setting a best time of 1.33.350. The only hiccough on the day was down to an hydraulic problem which occurred shortly after 3 pm and was then fixed. The Scuderia will resume testing at this circuit on Monday 16th February, again with Kimi Raikkonen on track.
