Jerez F1 test: Day one times

Kimi Raikkonen tops the first day of pre-season testing in Spain as teams work to come to terms with the new regulations in place in the 2014 F1 season
Kimi Raikkonen was fastest on the opening day of pre-season testing at Jerez - with limited running throughout the paddock.

Raikkonen was the only man to manage more than 20 laps on a day featuring a number of stoppages, the most serious coming when Lewis Hamilton crashed the new Mercedes after a front wing issue.

Red Bull and Caterham failed to post timed laps having only joined proceedings late in the day, while McLaren and Marussia weren't ready to start their testing programmes.

With the early running being more about reliability and system checks with the revised regulations rather than outright peformance, lap times were notably down on those set in the corresponding test last year and not representative of what is expected during the season ahead.

1. Kimi Raikkonen Finland Ferrari-Ferrari 1min 27.104secs
2. Lewis Hamilton Britain Mercedes-Mercedes 1min 27.802secs
3. Valtteri Bottas Finland Williams-Mercedes 1min 30.082secs
4. Sergio Perez Mexico Force India-Mercedes 1min 33.161secs
5. Jean-Eric Vergne France Toro Rosso-Renault 1min 36.530secs
6. Esteban Gutierrez Mexico Sauber-Ferrari 1min 42.257secs
7. Sebastian Vettel Germany Red Bull-Renault No time
8. Marcus Ericsson Sweden Caterham-Renault No time

NB – neither McLaren or Marussia took to the track

Jerez test times – February 2013:

1. Felipe Massa Brazil Ferrari-Ferrari 1min 17.879secs
2. Kimi Raikkonen Finland Lotus-Renault 1min 18.148secs
3. Jules Bianchi France Force India-Mercedes 1min 18.175secs
