Kimi fastest after all

First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari, working from the Catalunya circuit near Barcelona, Spain.

Kimi Raikkonen took to the track this morning at the wheel of an F2007. The technical programme for the day included development testing of new aerodynamic components and research into the best set-up for the car, this in regards to the forthcoming Spanish Grand Prix, which takes place at this track on Sunday 13th May.

Kimi completed a total of 97 laps, the quickest in a time of 1"21.194. Ralf Schumacher and Toyota had first been accredited with the fastest lap, but that was due to a drive-through over a chicane, as Toyota graciously pointed out.

Kimi Raikkonen and Ferrari therefore hold the fastest lap time on this first day of testing.

Testing continues at this circuit tomorrow, again with Kimi on the track.
