Räikkönen: Nothing going right for us
10 June 2014 – Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen has admitted nothing seems to be going right for the Scuderia at the moment.
Räikkönen had another poor race in Canada last weekend, coming home tenth in his Ferrari F14 T, more than 35 seconds behind team-mate Fernando Alonso, who was sixth in the sister car. Speaking after the race though, Räikkönen added that the new developments brought to Montreal do definitely have 'potential'.
"We knew this would not be an easy race, because on this track, we were not fast enough down the straights and we had some problems in the slow corners," commented the 2007 Formula 1 World Champion.
"On top of that, I never had a clear track ahead of me, for one reason or another I was always stuck behind other cars. For a lot of laps, I was stuck behind [Daniil] Kvyat's Toro Rosso and this cost me precious time. In the beginning I had some problems with the brakes [too] and the handling of my car wasn't consistent. Then after a few laps, the tyres behaved better, but still with highs and lows.
"[But] even if at the moment, [when] nothing seems to be going right for us, the new development package has given us more potential."
"Now we must just try and find more consistency."
