Team McLaren-Mercedes set some impressive lap times today [Tuesday] at Silverstone, following hot on the heels of their 'revival' at the British Grand Prix on Sunday, Kimi Raikkonen managing to break the 1 minute 18 second barrier.

David Coulthard was also quick in the second MP4-19B, and while the Scot couldn't quite match Kimi's 1m 17.649s, his 1m 18.026s, was still two tenths up on the Finn's pole time set on Saturday, and around seven tenths better than the fastest lap of the race, a 1m 18.739s, set by Michael Schumacher in the Ferrari F2004 on Sunday.

Jordan were also on track, Nick Heidfeld piloting the EJ14, despite rumours that he may be about to join Williams for the remainder of the season. The German though was significantly slower, his best a 1m 21.397s.

Testing continues tomorrow [Wednesday].
