It is like the old days. As long as Kimi doesn't suffer as many retirements as in the old days.

Apparently Ferrari stopped earlier due to a false telemetry warning.

Red Bull not on track because a spring in rear suspension was not mounted correctly. Change takes time.

MTV3 is on the sceen but their broadcast is out about 22.45 pm this evening, so I dont know if I am up at the time. Will see. Would be nice to see how the car behaves if Kimi does really fast lap. Seems there is a lot to check out !

and Kimi starting to put quick laps

Kimi Raikkonen is back out in the Ferrari and instantly gets down to business, setting a personal best on his first lap out and then going fastest of all with a 1:27.4. Next time round, the Finn goes quicker again, improving to a 1:27.1.

Kimi has now done 20 laps with a best time of 1m27.104. Most laps for the day and best time.

15:31 A 1m27.9 for Kimi this time around, which is also his 30th lap today.

15:32 And now Raikkonen comes in, leaving the track empty.

15:38 Rain has now hit Jerez, so that'll probably be it for today.

For me the Red Bull nose looks good, also does the Mercedes, the Sauber and the Ferrari. The rest just

As the first day draws to a close, McLaren reveals a little more about what has prevented it taking to the track today:

"Despite firing up successfully at the MTC last week, the car was predominantly affected by electrical issues during the day.

"The subsequent dismantling, inspection and re-installation of several major components ultimately meant we were unable to conduct any running today.

"We’re re-installing key systems on the car overnight, with the expectation that Jenson [Button] will begin the car’s installation programme tomorrow."
