Ferrari racer Kimi Raikkonen has completed pre-season tests in Barcelona with the best time of two weeks only 0,235 seconds not reaching to the absolute lap record of the Spanish track.
Finn became the first and only who managed to get out of 1.19, showing the result in the morning, 1.18,634 on Supersoft. The absolute record of the track of Barcelona-Catalunya in the configuration with the Chicane – 1.18,339 – was installed Felipe Massa on the tests in 2008.
In the afternoon, Raikkonen was forced to stop on track due to technical problems, but nevertheless crossed the mark of 100 laps, which today were also beaten by Sergio Perez, Carlos Sainz and lance Stroll.
The second at the end of the last day was the pilot of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen. The third time unexpectedly showed Sainz, ahead of even two riders Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, which is located on the fourth and fifth place respectively.
In the afternoon, the marshals had several times to get the red flags – except Raikkonen on the side of a parked Sainz and Perez slowed down at the entrance to the pit lane.
