Kimi Raikkonen has not won a grand prix since March 2013, this year his Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel has won three times but the Finn has yet to stand on the top step of the podium and admits this is not good enough.
Speaking to reporters ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, Raikkonen said, “I’m not happy with the results, that’s for sure. I want to win races, I want to be up there all the time. That hasn’t been the case this year too often.”
“I know when things are correct and there are quite a few things that happened and you pay the price for it. Driving-wise, I have the speed, so I’m not worried about that. it’s about putting things in the correct places.”
“If you look purely at the end results, it’s not very good. But put that aside and I think we have been quite happy some places, not so happy in some others. That shows in the results. Lately, especially last weekend, we have felt pretty good.”
“The end result was not what we wanted but there are other reasons for that. Hopefully we have the same feeling here, the same feeling with the car and I’m sure driving-wise there is no issue. We have to get all the details right and get the most out of the package. [Hungaroring] should be better for us, I might be wrong but hopefully not. We will give our best as always.”
“There are always good things in every weekend and there might be bad things in every weekend. We try to minimise the bad times and maximise the good ones. It’s easy to look only at the results,” added Raikkonen who won the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2005 as a McLaren driver.
