Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen tested  a 2013 spec GP3 car in Barcelona, and had a tongue in cheek crack at the power of the junior racing car.

Reports said the 2007 world champion, friends with GP3 team owner Afa Heikkinen, was at the Spanish Grand Prix venue to help with the feeder series’ 2014 development programme.

He told the series’ official website that the car was “actually fun to drive”.

But to Finland’s Turun Sanomat newspaper, he joked: “It was good, but they should think about putting an engine in the car.” (GMM.)
