Ricciardo fastest in first day of Pirelli wet tyre test

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne participated in the opening day’s test at the Paul Ricard circuit in southern France.

Daniel Ricciardo set a best time of 1:08.713 with 80 laps in the 2015 Red Bull RB11 chassis to lead the way at Circuit Paul Ricard.

McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne (1:09.131, 87 laps) and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen (1:09.637, 99 laps) also tested today to give to Pirelli’s 285 laps of wet weather running today.
