After sandstorms ruined last week's running in the island Kingdom, the three teams in Bahrain were relieved to find perfect conditions on Monday as a second consecutive test kicked off.

After sandstorms ruined last week's running in the island Kingdom, the three teams in Bahrain were relieved to find perfect conditions on Monday as a second consecutive test kicked off.

Christian Klien, the fastest of the trio in the BMW-Sauber, as well as Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari) and Jarno Trulli did much more than 100 laps apiece, and were separated on the final timesheet by just half a second.

"It was a very intense day," said Raikkonen. "We tried to make up the time we lost last week."

Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo told the Italian newspaper La Stampa: "Fortunately the sandstorms are over."
