Raikkonen tops Bahrain second practice

Kimi Raikkonen topped the second practice session for the Bahrain Grand Prix as Ferrari emerged as the fastest team under the floodlights on Friday evening.

Raikkonen was 0.11s clear of teammate Sebastian Vettel at the top of the timesheets and over 0.5s faster than the two Mercedes drivers. Raikkonen hooked up a relatively clean lap compared to his rivals to set a 1:29.817, but saw his session come to an early end when a long run was interrupted by a loose wheel nut following a practice pit stop.

Valtteri Bottas was 0.563s off Raikkonen’s best lap and 0.092s clear of his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.
