Kimi back at Sauber

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Kimi Raikko­nen re­turned to the wheel of a Sauber F1 car for the first time in 17 years last week. Ahead of his move to the team for the 2019 sea­son, the Finn tested with Sauber on the first day of the tyre test in Abu Dhabi. It was his first ex­pe­ri­ence of Sauber’s cur­rent set-up after he last raced for the team back in 2001. His day ended early with an un­spec­i­fied tech­ni­cal prob­lem and he was 11th fastest of the 12 driv­ers to set a time on the open­ing day. Car­los Sainz Jr was an­other driver to have a first run with their new team, and he said he has “a lot of in­for­ma­tion to an­a­lyse” after his Mclaren de­but.
