Kimi Räikkönen is keeping his feet firmly on the ground after topping the fourth and final day of the opening pre-season test at Jerez, explaining that pace-setting times 'mean nothing' at this stage of the year. The Finn, who took over the cockpit of the E21 on Thursday, says he is pleased with the set-up progress he has made so far.
"We continued our work from yesterday and made some good progress," said Räikkönen, who racked up a total of 83 laps on Friday. "We're at the top of the timing monitors, but that means nothing in testing.
"Our focus has been testing parts on the car, but I've been able to get the set-up more to my liking. For sure there's more work to be done in this area, but that's what we're here for. The car feels strong and we seem to have a good idea of where we're going with improvements. Let's see what happens in Barcelona."
Räikkönen and team-mate Romain Grosjean will be back in action at the Circuit de Catalunya later this month, with the second test taking place from 19-22 Feburary.
