Raikkonen: We can a good car to challenge in front

Published

2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen says that he was “expecting it to feel fast when you really go with the throttle but I had the sensation maybe once”. Kimi return to the sport with Lotus after two season break. The Finn also added that try to improve it and go to the front.

“I was expecting it to feel faster than it was,” Kimi told BBC F1, who has spent the last two years in rallying. OK, Valencia is not the fastest circuit, but it was still pretty normal.”

“I was expecting it to feel fast when you really go with the throttle but I had the sensation maybe once,” he said. I don’t feel in the neck any stiffness,” Raikkonen said. I probably expected to have more problems in the neck but I didn’t really have any.”

“We try to do as well as we can of course in every race, but it’s very difficult to say,” he said.

“We have to see how the car is in the testing and go from there. Hopefully we can have a good car to challenge in front and that would be nice, but if not we try to improve it and go to the front.

“The team has everything we need to produce a good car. We are not missing something that’s the reason we don’t have a good car. The people are very keen to have a good year. The atmosphere is great, it is a bit more family like than in other big teams, very nice people to work with and I’ve been enjoying it so far.”

“Racing is the biggest thing, that’s why I’ve probably come back,” he said. “That’s really the main thing.”
