Raikkonen: Next year I’ll make sure it’s open again



Raikkonen says that he knew the parallel way; he was going this way an escape path following the lap 52 final turn faults.

The Lotus speedy struggled with over-steering and went out from the track on lap 52 and tried to rejoin by using a parallel road. But that road was closed, following he come back to the race track.

“I went off at the last corner on lap 52 as I couldn’t see well with my visor being dirty and fogged up. Where I went off you can get back on the track by going through the support race pitlane, but you have to go through a gate.” Raikkonen said.

“I know this as I did the same thing in 2001 and the gate was open that year. Somebody closed it this time. Next year I’ll make sure it’s open again. I didn’t really have any expectations for the year, so I think it’s been a pretty good season.”

“We’ve had some good results and we’ve finished every race. Certainly from a race reliability perspective it’s been excellent. In terms of results, it could have been better, but it could have been an awful lot worse. Overall, I’m pretty happy. I just tried to do my best and to score points of course you have to finish the race.” The Finn added.

“We had a good car and I didn’t get involved in too many incidents with other people. Well I now know I have a trip to Istanbul for the FIA season end awards. Other than that no plans really. Let’s see what happens.”
