The Brazilian GP came and went. We had good chances of getting into the
top three but when it’s no, it’s no. It wasn’t something worth taking volts
about but at least we got some points home. It could have been worse.
The start was okay. It went like a pike from the shore and I felt that
I had a good thing going on. The race went like we expected. We were
3rd but in the start I had to try to get up because if you don’t try
you don’t get anything.
Oh well, with these snow pusher wings it’s tough if someone changes the
line in front of you. Webber knew that I came with KERS from behind and
he pulled in front of me. I went to the grass and I lost my front
wing. We didn’t get to attack after that.
The whole Finland-department went to the pitstop at the same time.
Heikki left first. I only noticed that he had the hose still attached
and that it sprayed gasolin all over the road. I think I got it in a
split second that it’s also coming over me and realised that it will
burst into flames when the temperatures are the same as in a cigarette
I went to the left, took my hands off the steering wheel and for a
wavering second I was thinking whether I should jump out of the car or
not. But then the flames died at once, my eyes were burning but I
continued the race.
It felt like Räikkönen’s boy would have gone to a microwave oven
instead of to a pitstop. But when these additional shows were over I
had a heavy car and couldn’t do anything else put the foot on the pedal
and try to improve my position.
I got stuck behind Grosjean and got to drive my in my own pace only
after he went fuelling. It was enough for 6th position but without the
hassle in the start we would have been second or at least third.
Now there’s only one race left in the reds and after that it’s
arrivederci to them. I will fight to the end for the 3rd position in
WCC. McLaren got ahead of us by one point but these last races have
been so even that we still have chances to get past them.
Abu Dhabi is a great place and it’s sort of a Ferrari’s own park. We
will try our best so that we would get a good result as some sort of a
