Battling the elements

Car: Ferrari F14 T

Laps/Km completed: 21/98

Scuderia Ferrari got through about half its programme today, partly because of light rain and much lower temperatures than those experienced at this track during the race weekend. In fact, it felt more like autumn, although the weather improved in the second part of the day, allowing for the use of dry weather tyres.

Kimi Raikkonen was at the wheel of the F14 T for this second in-season test session. He had to return to the garage after just a few corners because of a power unit failure and was back on track shortly after 4pm.

On the agenda was set-up testing using the Soft and Medium tyres, although work was delayed by the need to change the power unit and later, when the floor had to be replaced, following a spin at Turn 4.

Raikkonen will be back on track tomorrow for the final day of this test here in Catalunya.
