Raikkonen Fastest In Bahrain Test

Kimi Raikkonen topped the timesheets on the second day of testing in Bahrain this week.

The former world champion completed a good day of testing marred by only one incident involving the KERS system.  It had a major internal problem with cooling.

Although a disadvantage in the fact it meant Raikkonen lost 3 hours of testing, it did allow Ferrari to try out some of their KERS safety systems.

Jarno Trulli was in second place for Toyota, once again evaluating race setups.

Nick Heidfeld couldn’t repeat Christian Klien’s timesheet topping brilliance of yesterday and propped up the leaderboad.  Heidfeld took the opportunity to work on mechnical setups in his first warm test with the F1.09.
