Kimi Raikkonen: Our day will come

Published

Lotus’s speedy Kimi Raikkonen disappointed with Monaco Grand Prix, but the ex world champion insist Lotus day will come.

Last race weekend at Monaco the Finn start from eighth on the grid and to done for a outlying ninth place in tricky race.

But the Kimi thinks that Monaco results not effecting Lotus aggressive momentum and he is still expecting strong results will gets on upcoming races.

“One race doesn’t change the fact that we have been pretty strong everywhere – even at Monaco during most of the weekend,” said Raikkonen.

“Monaco is completely different from any other track and I don’t think we should worry too much about the fact that it wasn’t our best weekend.

“We’ve been quick everywhere and we’ve been on the podium. It’s difficult to get everything exactly right at the right time, which is what you have to do to win a grand prix.

“I’ve won races with other teams and I have a good feeling that Lotus are capable of strong results. Our day will come.”

“That’s racing. Ninth was the best we could do on the day. I didn’t start in a great position and I had some difficulties during the race so it wasn’t the easiest weekend, but at least we got a couple of points. It’s better than nothing but not exactly what we wanted.

“If we can have a bad race like that and still take two points it’s not the end of the world. Picking up points like this when we’re not at our best could make a big difference at the end of the season.”

Kimi is confident that his car should be strong in next week’s Canadian GP, although he concedes it is still too early to make predictions.

“We’ve been competitive in most places and we expect the same there, but like always it’s easier to say after the first day of running…”

“We tried something different for the special challenge of Monaco and it didn’t work for me. It’s impossible to test how something will work at Monaco without going to Monaco. We’re not allowed open testing and the roads would be too busy for a Formula 1 car anyway. I’m happy with the basic set-up, though it’s still an area I’m working on with the team.”
