Heikki Kovalainen had one hell of a smash in Bahrain today, throwing his car into the barriers at Bahrain. He climbed out of the mess unscathed, but the same cannot be said of the car. Bits of debris scattered everywhere and the right side of the car was pretty much demolished. Given the new rule changes of only two cars per testing, this is no doubt going to put a bit of a downer on Renault's progress.

Testing moves on to Bahrain, with both Ferrari drivers ending up fastest at the end of the day. Massa travelled over 80 laps, his team-mate doing half that and ending just two tenths behind.

So, yesterday there was more testing news, and another person on top, this time Massa in the Ferrari was fastest man on track. The red of the Ferrari hasn't been seen at the top for quite a while, and Raikkonen kept up the pace, settling in fifth. Massa must have felt pretty good about this, because he was ill in previous days testing.
