Belgian GP - Ferrari - PracticeKimi Raikkonen
set the pace in the morning practice session at Spa Francorchamps today, while Felipe Massa went off track on his first timed lap and therefore effectively missed the first 90-minute session. In the afternoon Massa set the third
fastest time with Raikkonen fourth.
“Despite losing time this morning, in the end we can call this a good day. We did some useful work on set-up and on the balance of the car and on a comparison of the two types of Bridgestone tyre available to us. From what we could see, we are working in the right direction. Now, we have to analyse the data very carefully to be as well prepared as possible for tomorrow’s qualifying and for Sunday’s race.”Kimi Raikkonen
“Satisfied with the way thing went this morning, but a bit less happy about the afternoon would sum up my day. This morning the car balance was very good, while we struggled a bit in the second session to find the right settings.
We need to get the package we have to work better.”
“Overall, this Friday has not thrown up anything different to any other first days of practice at the previous Grand Prix. We are struggling a little to do a good time on the first lap on new tyres, but our consistency in terms of performance over a long run is encouraging. We carried out the usual Friday tasks, comparing various aerodynamic and set-up options, as well as looking at the performance of the Bridgestone tyres.”
