Kimi Räikkönen will take back the cockpit of the team’s 2019 contender tomorrow.

Antonio Giovinazzi (car number 99):
“Today was a bit more challenging, as we faced some issues during our session. Nevertheless, the team is positive and motivated to continue learning about the car and our strengths.
