Sunny day at Jerez
Jerez de la Frontera, 10th December - A sunny second day of testing for Kimi Raikkonen. But the Finnish driver had to wait for half of the morning, so he could run on slicks, as the track remained wet for a long time in the morning. Furthermore the session had to be interrupted, because Alonso's Renault spun off the track.
"We haven't done many kilometres over these two days, because the conditions weren't really good," Kimi said when he met the press during the lunch break. "We're mainly trying to understand how the slicks work and we're testing some solutions the car will use in the upcoming season. It's useless to speculate about what will be in the future. Too many things are different on the cars on the track. To get a precise idea we have to wait until we all have the new cars."
As far as Honda's withdrawal and the actual situation in Formula One are concerned, Kimi didn't want to say too much: "Obviously I was really surprised by Honda's decision last week, but I don't want to comment what's happening at the moment."
At around 3:30pm Felipe Massa arrived at Jerez directly from Brazil. Felipe immediately came to the box and got briefed by his technicians about the test sessions and got ready to go on the track.
