Kimi Raikkonen come-back to Formula 1 with Lotus F1 team, after two year break, last two days Kimi hard to race for 2012 Formula 1 GP. Lotus made two day private test for Kimi, he says I feel very positive.

“It went well today and overall the two days have been helped me a lot,” said the Finn. “Even though I was using a two year-old car and the Pirelli demonstration tyres, I learnt about working with the team and the engineers which means I can focus on the new car once we get to Jerez for the first official test.

“It was great to be driving an F1 car again and from that respect I feel very positive.”

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Engineer 2007 world champion speed had improved since yesterday and labelled the test as “productive and valuable.

“We enjoyed another good day with Kimi in Valencia,” he said. “The morning was spent doing set-up work in particular with front and rear cambers. In the afternoon we ran very low fuel qualifying simulations with two new sets of tyres followed by a 27 lap run starting with a full tank of fuel.

“Kimi’s pace improved from yesterday as we would expect and we completed several start, pitstop and clutch simulations. We were even able to finish early as we completed our programme ahead of time. Overall it has been a productive and valuable two days.”
