2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen has made his long awaited return to the cockpit of an F1 car. Last night he took Lotus-Renault GP’s 2010 car for a spin around the Valencia circuit in Spain to dust up on his skills at speed. The Finn had to use the older machinery on demo Pirelli rubber because of the strict testing regulations preventing the team running the newer cars and racing rubber. While they may have over-dramatised some of the sub-titles (return of a legend?), it’s great to see the Finn back on track.
