I had a Renault. It fell to pieces.

I had a Red Bull. It was useless after a matter of minutes and I had to chuck it out :(

Cool thanks!

And yes Ykick, it's very very modern, they are building all the time here, and very very cheap! To fill my step dads v8 XC90 it only costs 9 quid! In UK it would be more like 80 quid!

Raikkonen sets blistering Sepang pace

Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen set a blistering pace on the second day of testing at the Sepang circuit, where 10 of the 11 Formula One teams are working this week.

The Finn driver, winner of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, posted a best time of 1:35.268 to edge his nearest rival by nearly half a second after 61 laps.

Raikkonen's time was almost a whole second quicker than yesterday's best, set by BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica.

Raikkonen, the only Ferrari driver on track, outpaced Williams' Alexander Wurz, who enjoyed another promising session with the Toyota-powered FW29. The Austrian managed a total of 114 laps, the most by any driver today.

Scot David Coulthard also had a strong day for Red Bull Racing, setting the third fastest time as the team continue to work on making progress with their RB3.

More to follow.

Today's times:

1. Raikkonen Ferrari (B) 1:35.268 61

Agreed. As much as i want to believe it Red Bull are not the 3ed fastest team at the moment.

Mclaren started an intensive testing programme and they are testing that stupid movable floor device which is horribly slowing them down and worringly enough Hamilton stopped on track at the end of the day causing a red flag. If they are sixth today and were fifth yesterday one can only tell perfectly that copying other team's innovations will hurt a lot.............if you are sixth fastest in the middle of an intensive testing programme testing new components it means you are slow................ I hope paddy lowe and his engineering team is reading this.........stop copying and start innovating..... <_<

Nice. I'd love to see a police force using Ariel Atoms or something whacky like that...they would get so many recruits :D
