Kimi Raikkonen visits new team mates in Jerez.

Ferrari fastest in Jerez, as new signing Kimi turns up to visit his team mates.

Kimi Raikkonen visits new team mates in Jerez.

Ferraris newly recruited driver made an unexpected visit to Jerez in Spain, where he met up with his future team mates and mechanics for the first time, or so we think! Recently he has been unable to join the team who have been testing the new 2007 Ferrari race car. This has seemed to be a strange situation where drivers who will not be driving for their teams of last year are unable to join their new teams due to the contractual situations.

Kimi Raikkonen has not been able to even sit in the car, let alone drive it because his former team Vodafone McLaren Mercedes will not release him early, yet at the same time, the McLaren team are requesting the early release of their new signing, two time world champion Fernando Alonso from the Renault Formula One team, and the same thing goes throughout the paddock and garages where contract have the teams and driver all tide up with no easy way to get out of it.

The Ferrari team have been dominating the practice day at Jerez this week, Philipe Maasa and the test driver Luca Badoer have been blitzing the other teams, yet as this is only a three day test, it is not always possible to tell how much progress is being made any team as they may be testing different set ups.
