Ferrari Team Quotes – Kimi Raikkonen – 2nd: "Today’s result is very important for the team in such a difficult
weekend because of what happened to Felipe yesterday. I am pleased with
second place, even if it is not completely satisfying as I always race
to win. On this type of track, we are certainly closer to the best than
at other circuits and today, honestly we were actually even closer than
we had expected to be. I got a good start, ending up fourth after the
first few corners. We knew it would be crucial to make up places at the
start to be in with a chance of fighting for the podium. After the
first pit stop we began to have problems with the right hand exhaust
and so, at the second stop, the team asked to leave using a different
procedure to usual. It lost me a bit of time but I still had a
reasonable advantage over Webber so I could manage the situation.
Today, the car wasn’t bad, but it was not quick enough to go for the
Stefano Domenicali: "We dedicate this result to
Felipe: at this time, all our thoughts are with him and his family and
I think this sentiment also applies to those who are close to him and
to fans all over the world. Kimi drove a great race and the team worked
in impeccable fashion, concentrating on the job despite what happened
yesterday. We got the best result we were capable of. Please allow me
on behalf of everyone at Ferrari to send our best wishes to Felipe. We
love you and we are all thinking of you."
Chris Dyer: "A super result on a difficult weekend
for the whole team. Kimi drove a great race, starting with a really
fantastic opening lap, followed by a very good second stint on the
softer tyres. In between those phases, the team pulled off a great pit
stop to put Kimi ahead of Webber. We were a bit worried about a problem
with an exhaust and so we told the driver to be very careful at the
second pit stop. We lost a bit of time and then in the final part, we
had to deal with a fast closing Webber, who was very quick, but all the
same, we managed to respond well enough to comfortably manage the
situation to the finish."
Kimi speaking to BBC: "It has been pretty difficult this weekend with Felipe’s accident, so second place is a good result for us but we would’ve liked to win but we didn’t have the speed. We’ve had new parts this weekend, this circuit is also similar to Monaco and our car suits this kind of circuit, but we keep pushing to get ourselves in the front and hopefully Felipe gets well soon so we can fight together and keep pushing."
Post-race press conference – Q. Kimi, it’s been a long time since we had a McLaren versus Ferrari at the front. Tell us about your race?
Kimi RAIKKONEN: We got a very good start. That definitely
helped. We knew before the race we needed to gain some places at the
start to be able to fight for the podium. I was only fourth after the
first few corners behind Lewis and then he overtook Mark and I could
follow Mark and we went at the same time for the first pit stop. Then I
don’t know if he had some issues or not and I got past him at the pit
stop. After that really I was just driving my own race, trying to catch
Lewis. I thought I had the speed for that at one point but then
suddenly he started to go the same speed and then a little bit faster.
The gap more or less stayed the same the whole time. Then I had some
issues on the last pit stop and that didn’t help either but we had a
good race. We knew that it would be difficult to challenge for the win
right now. We were probably closer than we expected, so even with not
such an easy weekend for the team, but we have got some good results,
so hopefully that is something we can keep going like this and it is
something positive at least this weekend for the team.
Q. Kimi, tell us about the moves you made at the start which came
up on the board that will be investigated after the race. How did you
KR: I don’t know about the whole thing, so if you can tell me what it’s about that would be nice.
Q. Off the start line into the first corner and the incident with Vettel?
KR: I haven’t even noticed if I touched somebody. I was
in-between, I think, Mark and somebody else but I don’t know what is
going on. That is the first time when you told me but I didn’t feel any
touching or anything, so I cannot comment on that.
Q. Kimi, first of all you were nearly hit by Mark Webber at the first pit stop; did you see him coming out?
KR: Yeah, I saw when he came out. I took a little bit more
space on the left hand side, so I was pretty sure that they would tell
him that I was coming. I don’t know how close it was but I saw him and
I gave him all the space that I could.
Q. What about your own second stop, you seemed to lose time there?
KR: Yeah, we probably had some problem, and we needed to do a
manual pull-away and then it went on to anti-stall, so it was a bit
confusing but I just took it easy because I knew that we had enough
time from behind, we were not in a hurry, so it took much longer than
it should. It’s always a bit difficult if you cannot make a normal
proper pit stop with a proper start. When you try to make a manual pull
away it can easily go to anti-stall, so that was the issue today.
Q. And generally speaking, how was the car?
KR: It was OK, nothing special. We had some issues in a few
places, we knew that before. They had been there almost the whole
weekend. We were a bit limited by what we could do this weekend.
Overall, we still had good speed but I think we could have had better
speed. It’s nice to be second, for the team and for all the people who
have put in a lot of effort and it hasn’t been an easy year or an easy
weekend with Felipe’s accident yesterday but we need to be happy. We
knew that our car was probably not the fastest one but we still got a
good result, good points. It was good but not exactly what we wanted.
You are never going to be happy unless you’re in first place, Hopefully
we can keep up this kind of speed and try to get good podium finishes
and hopefully get at least one win this year.
