Chinese GP - Free Practice

Kimi Räikkönen set the second fastest time of the first day during the opening sessions for round three of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship; the Chinese Grand Prix. Kimi lapped the Shanghai International Circuit in a time of 1min 35.492secs during a soft tyre run in the afternoon session. Romain Grosjean was hampered on his flying lap using the softs; ending his second session with the twelfth fastest time. Kimi trialled new rear floor aero parts.

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director - Technical programme notes:

- We evaluated a new front wing on Romain’s car.
- Kimi ran with new aero components on the rear floor.
- Pirelli’s medium (white) compound tyre was used in the first session, the medium and soft (yellow) tyres during the second.
- Romain ran with the latest exhaust package in the morning, reverting to the older configuration in the afternoon for comparison purposes.

What we learned today: - The new front wing appears to be beneficial and Romain will continue with it for the rest of the weekend.
- The data from the rear exhaust package appears to confirm the benefit of the latest specification.
- The car looks good with both tyre compounds.
