Raikkonen tops Barcelona Formula 1 testing for Ferrari

Kimi Raikkonen led the second day of Formula 1 pre-season testing at Barcelona, putting Ferrari just 0.023 seconds clear of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes.

Using soft compound tyres, Raikkonen set a best time of 1m20.960s just over an hour into Tuesday afternoon’s running – narrowly bettering Hamilton’s session-topping morning effort of 1m20.983s, which was set using super-softs.

Hamilton’s effort was still good enough to finish the day second overall, with Valtteri Bottas taking over driving duties for Mercedes for the afternoon.
