2007 Formula 1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen completed his first test in Peugeot's 908 Le Mans challenger at Spain's Motorland Aragon circuit. The Finn drove alongside Peugeot works drivers Franck Montagny, Stephane Sarrazin, Simon Pagenaud and Alexander Wurz, covering 35 laps during the day.
Raikkonen is believed to be eager to return to circuit racing after his mostly frustrating run in rallying. The test could lead to a possible outing with Peugeot in next year's Le Mans 24 Hours.
The 31-year-old, who told Finland's Turun Sanomat that racing at Le Mans would be "great," summarized the experience: "I enjoyed this test with Peugeot. The 908 is a really fun car to drive."
Peugeot Sport team manager Pascal Dimitri said the test had proved interesting, with Raikkonen offering valuable feedback on his first test.
"Kimi adapted very quickly to the car," Dimitri said, "and gave us a valuable technical feedback. It is always interesting to get inputs from drivers such as Kimi."
Peugeot's sport director Olivier Quesnel said the test had been planned for a long time and that no decisions have been made for the future.
"Originally, this test session was planned for a long time in order to prepare the rest of the season, on top of which we have allowed Kimi to discover the 908. As of today, nothing has been scheduled or planned for the future."
