Kimi Raikkonen has completed his test in Peugeot's 908 Le Mans 24 Hours racer after joining team regulars Franck Montagny, Stephane Sarrazin, Simon Pagenaud and Alex Wurz for a day of running in Spain.
The Finn, currently competing in the World Rally Championship in a privately-run Citroen DS3 WRC, covered a total of 35 laps of the Motorland Aragon circuit, which he was sampling for the first time.
“I enjoyed this test with Peugeot,” he said. “The 908 is a really fun car to drive.”
Raikkonen had been quoted in his homeland as saying that he was interesting in the prospect of competing at Le Mans next season, albeit only as part of an extended sportscar programme and not simply as a one off.
However, while admitting that the test had been planned for some time, Peugeot sport director Olivier Quesnel said there wasn't anything currently planned for the future.
“Originally, this test session was planned for a long time in order to prepare the rest of the season, on top of which we have allowed Kimi to discover the 908,” he said. “As of today, nothing has been scheduled or planned for the future.”
