“Obviously it’s much nicer than being out of [the podium] but, you know, you come second and obviously we got quite close to the Mercedes but it’s a bit disappointing after that … but I’d rather take this one than something else,” Raikkonen said. “You cannot feel happy. We are happy to be second but it’s still disappointing; it’s not what we want to do.
“Big thanks to the team, I had a pretty hard time last year. This year in the beginning, just some bad luck in the races but, you know, the team has done a great job over the winter and everybody is pushing together, in the same direction and I’m sure we are only going to get stronger and better as a team and improve the car. So, it’s a great place to be.”
