Today, Kimi Raikkonen was at the wheel of the F14 T for the first day of a two day test at the Yas Marina Circuit.

In the morning, the team worked on fine tuning some different aerodynamic and mechanical configurations, concentrating on set-up work. The afternoon programme featured a series of short and long distance runs, while working on systems management, as well as an initial evaluation of the 2015 version of the Pirelli tyres.

“It was a normal day of testing” Kimi told http://www.ferrari.com. “With more running time and more tyres to work with, we managed to try various solutions without having any problems. Testing next season’s tyres produced positive results, but will have to wait to try them on the new car in winter testing, to get an in depth understanding of their behaviour.”

Testing continues for a final day at this circuit tomorrow. Taking to the track for Scuderia Ferrari will be Raffaele Marciello, the Ferrari Driver Academy driver, making his debut at the wheel of the F14 T.
