Michael Schumacher at Barcelona on the F2008

Maranello, 25th February
Circuit: Circuit de Catalunya - 4.655 km

Drivers: Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher
Car: F2008

Weather: air temperature 11/18 C, track temperatur e 11/18 C. Overcast, wet track in the morning.

After a two day break, testing resumed this morning for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro at the Catalunya Circuit, near Barcelona, in preparation for the start of the 2008 World Championship.

Having recovered, after not being able to run last week, having been slightly indisposed, Kimi Raikkonen took to the track today at the wheel of an F2008, fitted with the latest aerodynamic updates. Alongside him was a special test driver in the shape of Michael Schumacher.

On a day when the weather was not at its best - a wet track for almost the entire morning - the day's work centred mainly on the overall reliability of the car, as well as set-up testing.

The day in figures is as follows: 82 laps for Kimi (best time 1.22.319) and 83 for Michael (1.22.428).

Testing continues at this track tomorrow, when Felipe Massa will join Raikkonen.
