After a summer break one day longer than most, Kimi returned to the cockpit – and the media glare – for the first day of running here in Belgium, where there seems to be quite a lot people want to know from the Iceman…
Q: Have you recovered from yesterday?
KR: I’m fine.
Q: How was your day today?
KR: The car was okay. It could have been a bit better, but it wasn’t a disaster either so for sure we can improve a bit more for tomorrow. The weather wasn’t great this morning and it’s certainly better for us when it’s dry. We had a little problem with the front wheel in the first session which meant we didn’t run as much as we wanted to. The afternoon was pretty normal. For sure it looks like it will be a difficult weekend to beat Red Bull but that’s what we must try to do if we want to catch them in the Championship.
Q: What do you make of all the speculation surrounding where you might drive next year?
KR: There must be much more interesting things to write about and tell people than the same things over and over again.
