Räikkönen hoped for more Super DRS time
20 July 2012 – Lotus grabbed most headlines in Germany on Friday, becoming the first team to run a Mercedes-like Super DRS concept. However, the Enstone-based team was unable to make full use of its new parts because of the poor weather conditions at Hockenheim.
“We didn’t learn a lot today, with the weather conditions as they were,” said Räikkönen, whose new haircut had grabbed more trivial attention amongst fans a day earlier. “It was like Silverstone, when we also didn’t have very good conditions.
“Overall, it was a pretty normal Friday when you try different things and get as much running as the weather allows.”
As Räikkönen ended the day in tenth position, team-mate Romain Grosjean was fifth.
