Raikkonen: Back feels “much, much better”

Published

on

Ferrari-F14TFerrari speedy Kimi Raikkonen says his back feels “much, much better” after surgery at the end of last season.

After the 2013 Abu Dhabi GP, Raikkonen undergoes a successful back surgery, and its forcing him to miss the final two grands prix of the season.

“It’s been okay since I had the operation,” Kimi said.

“Hopefully it will stay like that. But with those things you never know, it’s been there for a long time. I’ve had things done for it before and some days it’s good and then you wake up the next day and it might not be. But it’s been much, much better and pretty normal since [the operation].”

“We are getting there and we have four days left to learn all the things. At the first race it will be a bit of an unknown but it’s the same every year – you run out of time and you want to have more testing. That’s how it goes and we will see how we do next week and go from there.”

Raikkonen’s second pre-season test ended with crash and he says that, it’s not too worrying for the Italian outfit next development progress. The Finn heavily crash into the wall on the exit of Turn 4 ahead of a head of chequered flag.
