Kimi Raikkonen joined Juan Pablo Montoya at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo for day two of this week's test. Running was slightly delayed in the morning as a result of cold track conditions and the teams went out on track from 10am onwards.

Juan Pablo spent the majority of the morning on track completing a race distance in his MP4-21, which included pit stop practice for the team. The Colombian's afternoon saw work focus on set-up programmes for the opening races over shorter runs. Juan Pablo covered over 340km in total over 87 laps.

Kimi's programme for the day was also set-up work, with the Finn putting in a time of 1m11.174. A minor transmission problem in the morning saw Kimi take to the track for the first time shortly before 11:00 to start his running.

Towards the end of the session both Kimi and Juan Pablo had mechanical failures on track. Kimi returned to the track for the final 10 minutes, whilst Juan Pablo's day ended as the team prepared his car for tomorrow's running.

Kimi and Juan Pablo will both continue testing in the two MP4-21s tomorrow.
