Testing at the Hockenheim circuit

Circuit: Hockenheimring - 4.574 km
Driver: Kimi Raikkonen
Car: F2008
Weather: air temperature 17/22 o.C, track temperature 18/26 o.C. Very changeable with rain at times

There is no respite for the Formula 1 teams who, less than forty eight hours after the end of the British Grand Prix, were back in action at Hockenheim for the first of three days of testing.

Kimi Raikkonen took to the track for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro. The reigning world champion and, along with two others, the leader of the 2008 series, had a programme centred on set-up work in preparation for the German Grand Prix, which takes place at this track on 20th July. He also evaluated new aerodynamic and mechanical components. The day's work was held up by rain which fell intermittently up to four in the afternoon. Kimi completed a total of 63 laps, the quickest in a time of 1.15.803.

The Scuderia continues testing at this circuit tomorrow, with Raikkonen again on track.
