Minimizing the loss
The first two races are done, I’m back in training at home, and getting ready for the next double in China and in Bahrain.
We got the best result in Australia, but not that good in Malaysia. As I said after winning in Melbourne, the main target for the championship fight is to get strong points and if that is not possible, to minimize the not that good results while time being.
It’s was a race to minimize the loss. Well, we lost a piece of the front wing in the first lap, then we had some tight moments with a couple of drivers, and finally managed to finish the race in P7 and take six points with us.
Afterwards it didn’t feel too bad. We still got some points, we had a good feeling with the car on Friday, we know more or less what went wrong and we should be able to fix it for the next race.
Obviously, it doesn’t mean anything right now which position we have in the championship, but still it’s better to be closer to the top like this compared what we had done last year after a few races.
1 thought on “Kimi’s Column: Malaysia review”
The Malaysian GP still have a bitter taste. After the friday practices we were all very confident, Kimi showed tremendous speed and he was both very competitive on a flying lap, which is not the particular strength of the E21, and his race pace was impressive. But circumstances led to that P7 and hopefully this P7 will turn out to the a good thing at the end of the chmpionship. Hopefully the team is working hard on the lack of grip on intermediates since it used to rain during Chinese wkend and it’s the case for many races such as Silverstone, Spa, Montreal… Guys do u think Kimi can fight 4 the WC? And why u think so? Thx in advance.
