Raikkonen: Ferrari will sort out its F1 problems

2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen says Ferrari is doing an 'incredible amount of work' and will get it right, although he concedes it will take time.
Kimi Raikkonen is convinced the Scuderia will sort out its problems although he has warned it will take time.

Raikkonen looked set to take his first podium of the season in Monaco last weekend, until Max Chilton made contact with the Finn when he attempted to unlap himself under the second safety car period. The resulting puncture dropped Raikkonen out of contention.

Speaking this week, Raikkonen admitted the championship situation doesn't look good given the dominance of Mercedes, however, he is determined to keep fighting.

“I think it is very difficult for anyone to battle with the Mercedes drivers but you never know. I would like it to be us even if that will be hard, especially for me personally, given the position in the championship. But I have always been used to fighting and together with the team, which is still hard at work on the development of the F14 T, I hope to be able to get some good results,” he told Ferrari's official website.

“As I've said, we are doing an incredible amount of work and I think we will sort out our problems, but you need time.

“If we manage it before the end of the season the results will come because my motivation is intact.”

Raikkoen also added that he doesn't think he has changed much since he won the F1 Drivers' title in 2007.

“I have more experience compared to when I won the title and I am a few years older but I don't feel it and I still have a great desire to race,” he stated.

They brought a crappy car to the party every year and to support Alonso's title chances had to spend all resources on that year's car (and still did not win a championship since 2008). The end result is that Ferrari looks like a sore loser team with no championships for 5 continuous years. The sixth year is far worse than the other five since their cars are almost on verge of getting lapped If they had focussed on the next year in advance may be they wouldnt be in this place. the first guy to go should be pat fry not domenecali. he has been there long enough and messed it up so much . I would say just fire him and put james allison incharge
