First day of testing this week for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, working as from today at the Valencia circuit.
On a day which began once again with rain affecting proceedings, Kimi Raikkonen and Luca Badoer were the two drivers working for the Scuderia. The Finn had his maiden outing in the F2007, while Luca Badoer used the 248 F1.
The day's programme centred on development of the new car for Kimi, while Luca concentrated on testing new components and set-up. Unfortunately, his work came to a premature end because of a technical problem on his car.
The day in figures is as follows: 47 laps for Kimi (best time 1:13.529) and 48 for Luca (1:16.388.) The Scuderia continues testing at this circuit tomorrow, when Raikkonen will be joined by Felipe Massa.
