Scuderia Ferrari were first and last in opening 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix practice on Friday with Formula One championship leader Sebastian Vettel quickest while team mate Kimi Raikkonen abandoned his smoking car and trudged off in the desert heat. Kimi’s solitary walk through the arid landscape in overalls and helmet, before being collected by a scooter, was an arresting sight — if also typical of a driver with ‘Iceman’ tattooed on his left arm. The Finn did a mere six laps before stopping with high engine temperatures.
There’s a new sheriff in town 🤠 😂
