Hmm...TS writes Kimi hasnt got a clue about fuel saving as he hasnt been able to drive long stints. But being Kimi, he just says, he will learn it in the first race then.
About Renaults situation..they know they can drive to the finishing line..but with very slow lap times. If they put full powers to the engine they dont get there.

Interview with Rosberg. He said there is a lot of sand on the circuit and a lot of wind, like a little sandstorm. He don´t expect fast times today.

I cant believe Kimi has problems again today, and yesterday Alonso did over 100 laps without any problem. It really sucks. They should actually give Kimi half of the day tomorrow, but they obviously wont do it. I just hope Kimi is hitting most of his problems now and will be spared when the actual races start.

Ferrari had a software problem , then they had a joiner error....this implies they dont really forus on what they are doing. Purely sloppy work.

#492 RE: 2014 Winter Testing by YiNing 01.03.2014 12:54

I started to think maybe someone in Kimi's garage is not competent....

that's harsh. They put a new software this morning.. for whatever reason, probably to improve things. Parts fail, it happens and problem now is that even small things which were just a work of a few minutes to change in the past are taking much much longer now. I don't think you can blame the mechanics/engineers. What about Renault or RB then?

They have one team, or two because they have shifts, so the same for both drivers at testing.

Kimi ready for a race simulation

Sakhir, 1 March – It’s been a busy morning in the Scuderia Ferrari garage on the penultimate day of testing at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. The mechanics have finished fitting the latest updates to the F14 T, but the team also had to tackle an annoying problem with a connector which involved some dismantling before the car was ready.

This afternoon, Kimi Raikkonen is scheduled to tackle a race simulation, hopefully without any unplanned visits to the garage. Team Principal Stefano Domenicali is here in Bahrain for the final two days of testing prior to the Australian GP and he’ll be keeping a keen eye on proceedings as the Finn goes for a 60 lap run to submit all the components to a stiff test. For Kimi it will be a chance to adapt his driving style to the demands imposed by the new regulations, when race management and strategy will be even more important than ever.
