Barcelona Test 2 – Kimi’s thoughts
Kimi Raikkonen: “We learned something today, even with a few issues which I am sure we can fix. The car is not too bad overall, but there are some areas where we want to improve, especially when it get tricky with the conditions that we are experiencing and cause the tyres notto work the same way from one lap to another. Now we have another day of testing to put together what we have learned. In a few days in Melbourne we will find out where we really are.” (Source: ferrari.com)
“More or less the car is the same,” he said of developments compared to last week’s test. “We can get some, but not for today, hopefully for tomorrow.
“I think it’s not too bad, really, how the car behaves.
“There are certain things that we want to improve – and we want more grip obviously, always, to go faster – but sometimes it’s a bit tricky here with the conditions that we are having.
“If the tyres don’t work – one lap they work, next they don’t – it changes a lot.”
“We’ve made a good step from last year. It’s hard to say from testing, but two weeks will tell us once we’re going in Australia,” he said.
“Overall it’s a good a feeling and we still have one day to put all of the things we have learned together and hopefully we will be happy with everything.
“Obviously a laptime would be good, but we’ll see in a few weeks in the first race where we are.
“It’s not an issue, as long as you’ve got a good feeling on every fuel load you run it’s usually OK.” (Source: autosport.com)
