Raikkonen was one of the busiest on the day, rackiang up a total of 136 laps in his SF16-H challenger.
Felipe Massa followed Raikkonen but was nearly a half-second off the pace. The Williams ace had a best lap of 1:23.193.
Nico Hulkenberg of Force India rounded out the top three with a fastest time of 1:23.251.
"It was one of our best days of testing. We could run without a single stop, except for the red flags on track.
"Maybe we could have been faster on some laps, but in general the feeling was fine and we are more or less happy with the way things are going. Of course there’s always room to improve and work to do.”
