Kimi’s Rally Turkey Video Review


Raikkonen boosted by Turkey result

Kimi Raikkonen believes his fifth place in the
Rally of Turkey a week ago will help as he strives to improve his
competitiveness in the World Rally Championship.

He was one of few drivers not to crash or puncture a tyre on the harsh,
rocky stages in Turkey and recorded his highest finish so far.

"It’s a sign that we’re going in the right direction," said Raikkonen.
"In Jordan the speed was not so good but we finished the rally; in
Turkey it was bit better and we finished fifth.

"In fact, we did not do anything that was very different: it was just a
question of having more time in the car and working with the pace notes.
In some places I felt confident, in others less confident. But for
sure, a result like this helps."

Raikkonen will miss the next event in New Zealand, even though his
Citroen Junior team-mate Sebastien Ogier is now entered for it. But
Raikkonen is hoping for another test in the C4 ahead of his next rally,
in Portugal at the end of May.
