Bahrain GP - Practice

Kimi Räikkönen went fastest for Lotus F1 Team on the opening day of action here at round four of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship; the Bahrain Grand Prix. Kimi set a 1min 34.154secs lap using the medium compound tyres in hot conditions during the Friday afternoon practice session.

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director - Technical programme notes

- Kimi ran with the latest front wing specification.
- Kimi evaluated new rear suspension components during the morning session.
- Pirelli’s hard (orange) compound tyre was used in the first session, the hard and medium (white) tyres in the afternoon.

What we learned today:

The latest front wing works well.
We are analysing the data from the new rear suspension components.
The car looks good with both tyre compounds.

"There’s still more time to be found."

Kimi: “It’s nice to be fastest but you never know what the others are doing; we just stick to our programme and don’t take too much notice of what else is happening. I actually made a mistake through the final corners on my fastest lap, so there’s still more time to be found. It’s tricky to get the setup right here and the wind can make a big difference; it might work for you one way but make things more tricky the other. It wasn’t a bad start today; things aren’t exactly where we want them but we’re reasonably fast, so let’s see what we can do from here.”
