Räikkönen – "I have a positive feeling"

Physically, I felt fine after 117 laps. Conditions were quite windy on track but despite this I got a better feeling from the car so it’s positive progress

Lotus F1 Team race driver Kimi Räikkönen completed his first test of the E20 in Jerez, southern Spain, today.

The Finn completed 117 laps to add to yesterday’s 75 of the 4.4 km test venue. A early off in the morning – damaging the underside of the E20 on the kerbs – did not dent Kimi’s enthusiasm for the new car.

“We seem to have a good car and I have a positive feeling from this first test,” said Kimi. “There was a small issue with damage to the floor this morning when I went off and came back on to the circuit. An edge on a kerb caused the damage and we lost some time as it was repaired.

“Apart from that it was a good day and we completed some long runs and good mileage.”

Despite completing over 500 km in the cockpit today, and the numerous requests for photographs and interviews, Kimi was full of energy at the end of the day.

“Physically, I felt fine after 117 laps. Conditions were quite windy on track but despite this I got a better feeling from the car so it’s positive progress.”
