Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel had a trouble free day as testing continued at the Barcelona Circuit Du Catalunya in Montmelo on Wednesday. The German completed a total of 151 laps and ended the day in fourth place with a fastest time of 1m 24.611s.
Despite Kimi Raikkonen’s issues on the opening day of the test, Vettel was unconcerned saying:
I would have liked to drive a little bit more but we are happy with what we have so far. I am not concerned about what happened to Kimi. Obviously, you don’t want these things to happen but if they do here, during a test, it’s ok. It would be worse if they happened in a couple of weeks, so it is not an issue. This is a test and it takes time to look and check everything. We still have time and two days left here, so let’s try to use them and the we’ll see. We will push and try to do everything. Our President already said a couple of times he is expecting Ferrari to be in the front row in Australia, so at least he is consistent. We will push and will try everything we can.
The four time world champion completed a programme of Aero and set up work as well as completing long runs.
Kimi Raikkonen will be back behind the wheel of the SF16H on Thursday for the final time before the opening race of the season in Melbourne, Australia later this month.
