Ferrari: Raikkonen fault for his terrible start at Italian GP

Ferrari F1 team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene believes that, Kimi Raikkonen was at responsibility for his terrible start at Italian Grand Prix.

Raikkonen took his best qualifying position since 2013 by qualifying second in Monza, but his Ferrari to fall into anti-stall as the race start and Raikkonen fell to back of the field on the run to the turn one. Following the race the Finn says that there was “a problem with the second clutch”.

“If it’s a technical issue we will let you know, but at the moment it looked like he was struggling or messing a bit with the finger to follow the procedure,” Arrivabene said.

“But to make an accusation before I have data is wrong.

“What I can say to be positive is that yesterday he made a fantastic qualifying and today into the race, starting from that position, he was doing very good overtaking and we were happy.

“Of course, if you are asking what the ideal situation would be it was to see Kimi go and pass for first in the first corner and to have Vettel second or third. This would be ideal, but we have to be happy because we had a driver who was second, we are still second in the constructors’ championship. That’s fine.”
