A week after its official launch, Kimi Raikkonen enjoyed his first taste of Ferrari’s new car on Monday at a private test at Mugello. But despite switching from Portugal’s Algarve Motor Park to their Italian test track, Ferrari still found their running limited by heavy showers.

Nevertheless Raikkonen managed to cover a total of 54 laps in the F60, setting a best time of 1m 34.430s as he continued development of the car ahead of the 2009 season.

The Finn will continue to test at the circuit on Tuesday before handing the car over to team mate Felipe Massa on Wednesday. Massa was charged with giving the F60 its official shakedown last week.
