Raikkonen Denies Brake-by-Wire Problems

Following the opening Grand Prix of the FIA Formula One World Championship season in Australia Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen was quoted as saying there has been an issue with the brake-by-wire braking system on the Ferrari F14 T.

Talking in the latest FIA press conference ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix, he is now denying the problems: “Ah, I don’t know where that came from, It’s not the issue. There is nothing wrong with the system” said the Finn.

“Somebody asked me after the race and I said ‘it’s not that’ – because they kind of said ‘is there some issue?’ It’s not true.” he added before speaking about the setup of the car and working on getting it right for him.

“We’re making some stuff for me, so hopefully once we get those it will get a bit more easy to get a bit more feeling in the front end. But it will take a little while. Obviously not the ideal start for the year, for the team, not what we obviously want to achieve.”

The 2007  Formula One World Drivers’ Champion understands that it could be long year but is looking forward to building on what they have achieved already. “We have plenty of good people and they’re working flat out as a group to improve things. So, we still have things to do but I’m sure we can keep progressing.”
