Raikkonen confident over 2016 Ferrari F1

Kimi Raikkonen is refusing to get carried away with predictions about Ferrari’s hopes of beating Mercedes in 2016.

The pace of the Finn’s teammate Sebastian Vettel was tantalisingly close to the silver cars in Brazil, moving boss Maurizio Arrivabene to muse that Maranello can target not only catching Mercedes next year, but beating them.

“Obviously that’s always the goal,” Raikkonen is quoted by Marca newspaper.

“We have access to a lot of numbers that you look at and say that it will be something amazing,” he added.

“But I’ve been here long enough to know that there is not a single team that ever says ‘Let’s build a worse car now’.

“I’m sure the people have done their homework and it is true that the car has improved a lot since last year,” the 2007 world champion continued. “The aim now is to take another step, but that also depends on what the other teams will do.

“Will it be enough? We will see next year,” Raikkonen said.
