Raikkonen sees the way up despite difficulties
Kimi Raikkonen is out of contract at the end of this season, and it remains undecided whether Ferrari will hand him an expansion.

But Raikkonen says that the speculation surrounding his future at Ferrari “doesn’t really surprise” him as it has been going on for months.

“Obviously [Ferrari] make their decision,” he stated, “We try to do good races although the last race was a bit difficult but that’s part of the game. Sometimes you have that.

“I don’t know anything more than you guys. I hope I’ll know at some point what will happen. It’s all been speculation since the start of the year and always the same stories so it doesn’t really surprise me.”

Kimi – speaking about British GP – “So far, the season has not been ideal and we haven’t got the results we expected, but the most important thing now for me is to try and have good races. Compared to last year, it hasn’t been a disaster, we are in the fourth place in the Championship and second as a team and we have all the tools to do better.

“After a bad race in Austria we hope to have a good weekend here: I like this place, there’s a lot of tradition in motor racing. Maybe I enjoyed more the original layout, it was more flowing, similar to Monza or Spa, but it is always a nice place to come to.”

“Now it’s too early to say what will happen, so far we have been more or less the same in every track, so I don’t expect here to be anything less than that. Here it’s often quite windy and this can make it tricky for everybody. We have the speed and all the tools to avoid mistakes. If we got rid of all the small issues, we could have good results.”
