Fernando Alonso versus Kimi Raikkonen

In an under-performing Ferrari F14T, Fernando Alonso is easily beating his teammate Kimi Raikkonen this season but the Spaniard cannot explain why the Finn is struggling in a similar machine.

Raikkonen is the only driver on the grid who has yet to beat his team mate this season, and Alonso cannot explain the reason. He told the media in Budapest, “I don’t know what problems he has.”

He added, “Definitely Kimi and I work together a lot and all the meetings are quite long this year because we have a lot of things to sort out after the races. It’s not a big change compared to the work I did with Felipe [Massa] or other teammates.”

“Also, compared to my teammate, who has the same car, I have rarely felt better,” said Alonso. “With the new rules I have been almost every day in the simulator, also working with Pedro [de la Rosa]. I’ve spent more time in Italy, with the team, than ever before.” (GP247-GMM)
