Kimi Raikkonen: “We can only keep working hard and improve”


Kimi Raikkonen - Scuderia Ferrari

Scuderia Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen appears unsure as to how the last weekend of the 2016 Formula One season will end for the team, and unlike his team-mate Sebastian Vettel, he did not feel as though the year had gone as well as the team had hoped.

Abu Dhabi is the last round of the season and it’s difficult to say how the weekend will go,” commented the Finn. “We’ve had some strong moments, even in the last weekends, and some others not so good, so we can only promise that we’ll give our best and hopefully we’ll be in the fight for the podium.

“If we look at the big picture of the season we cannot be happy: we’ve done our best and obviously it hasn’t been good enough,” referring to the fact that the team did not win any races throughout the year, unlike the three victories last year.

“We didn’t achieve the results that we wanted as Ferrari. The good thing is that we have great people in the team working well together and improving things.  For me personally this year has been a bit better than last year, but I suffer as much as the team does when we don’t win races and fight for the Championships. We can only keep working hard and improve.
