Fernando Alonso has hinted that teammate Kimi Raikkonen must improve, as the Spaniard again brought home the points for Ferrari while the ‘Iceman’ did not.

Alonso has totally dominated his fellow former Formula 1 World Champion at Ferrari since the Finn returned to the Maranello team for 2014.

He argues that Raikkonen’s struggles are now hurting Ferrari, who at Hockenheim fell behind Williams in the fight for third place in the constructors’ standings.

“In the constructors’ championship we have lost a bit of ground to Williams,” Alonso confirmed to sports daily Marca after the German Grand Prix.

“We have only been able to count on one car again, and we have to improve on that.” (GMM)
