Kimi Raikkonen says he will wait until Melbourne to see how the Ferrari SF15-T compares to its Formula 1 rivals after completing his pre-season testing programme in Barcelona.

The former World champion notched up 136 laps on his final winter testing day, with a fastest time of 1m 23.276s, ending the day P3 on the timesheets. He was able to run a full race simulation at the Circuit de Catalunya without any problems, as well as completing some aerodynamic tests and set up changes.

"Overall it hasn't been a bad test since we covered a race distance today," Raikkonen said. "Now we wait to go to Melbourne to see how we stand compared to the others. I wish to thank the team for the work it has done during the winter."

Raikkonen's technical director at Ferrari James Allison feels the car is now almost ready to race at Melbourne in two weeks and is satisfied with the overall package after his driver's first race simulation.

"We've got a lot of laps under our belt in this winter testing but until you actually go out and do the laps for a race you really can't claim that you're ready to go to Melbourne and do it for real," Allison said. "So we're happy to get our first race distance of the winter done, happy to have achieved at the first attempt, and with the reliability that we showed."

Raikkonen will now hand over the Ferrari SF15-T to his new team-mate Sebastian Vettel for the last day of the final pre-season test tomorrow.
