Kimi Raikkonen’s quite unsuccessful start to the season resumed in the first practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix. His Ferrari faced engine problems before the highly anticipated third race of the F1 season.
The Finnish F1 driver managed only six laps before retiring, with reports ascertaining that his turbo overheated.
Kimi’s trading session turned to be in stark, which this can’t be said about his teammate Sebastian Vettel’s experience, who managed to lead from the front from a time of 1:32.697, leaving Daniel Ricciardo as well as Max Verstappen behind.
For Raikkonen it has been rather a mixed start, as he has witnessed Vettel conquered the opener in Australia as well as finished second the previous weekend in China.
In spite of the fact, the driver managed to finish both races in 5th, the F1 driver has found himself 21 points behind Vettel as well as Lewis Hamilton. These two F1 drivers happen to be joint leaders, sharing 43 points.
Having completed the race in China, the driver told that they should have grasped a better result, but fortune didn’t favor them.
