Team RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS had to conclude its three days test session at Nevers Magny-Cours prematurely after Kimi Räikkönen went off the track around 10.15 am on his second flying lap and damaged the car. Kimi Räikkönen was taken to Nevers Magny-Cours CHU hospital for a routine check-up. He was released from hospital after the check-up short before lunch. He is now back home in Finland for the week-end.

The car was too damaged for Team RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS to be repaired in time to continue testing in Nevers Magny-Cours and the team decided to go back to Hinwil.

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Test Engineer): "Team RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS had completed its intended program with Nick Heidfeld driving yesterday and we were conducting validating run with Kimi Räikkönen today as he went off at L'Ecole "
