Raikkonen, the fastest on the penultimate day of testing

Finn Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) was the fastest on the penultimate day of pre-season training for the Formula One World Cup that took place this week at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
The Finn’s time this Thursday is the best achieved so far in these test series. And he did it on a very productive day for Ferrari, with a grand prix simulation included (66 laps in a row, as many as in Spain).
Raikkonen began the day by testing the new Halo safety system, a structure designed to protect the drivers’ heads and that the FIA ​​intends to introduce in cars since 2017.
The Nordic champion in 2007 set his best time with the new ultra-soft tire compound. His 1: 22,765 was 45
thousandths better than the one marked by his teammate and world tetracameon, the German Sebastian Vettel, during the second day of the first test series, completed last week, also with the new Pirelli tires.
