Raikkonen: I am not worried about my future 17 July, 2014 Kimi Raikkonen back to full fitness in Germany It was a predominantly German version of the FIA press conference at Hockenheim, with all four local drivers joined on the panel by the Dane, Kevin Magnussen and the Finn, Kimi Raikkonen. With this being the Ferrari man’s first official appearance since the frightening crash on the opening lap of the British Grand Prix, journalists were keen to hear how he was feeling two weeks afterwards. “I had some pain afterwards, not so much in my leg, but more in my ribs,” he revealed. “That was why I did not drive in the [Silverstone]test, but it’s all fine now.” Raikkonen was asked if that was the heaviest crash of his career. “Probably! And hopefully there won’t be too many more,” he replied. Kimi Raikkonen has had more crashes than normal this year starting early during Bahrain testing “It hurt, but sometimes it’s the really slow accidents when you can get badly hurt. The Silverstone crash was just unfortunate, it was nothing serious and just part of this sport.” Raikkonen remained positive when asked about the more general difficulties he is experiencing on track this season. “I believe the situation will turn around at some point, as it can’t go on much longer like this,” he maintained. “It’s true that it’s no fun, but we have been in this situation before and always managed to turn it around. I strongly believe we can fix the issues and be back where we should be. How soon? I hope quickly but I am not worried about my future.” Raikkonen is 12th in the championship standings with 19 points to his credit, while Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso lies fourth with 87 points.
