Kimi Raikkonen believes Ferrari is going in the right direction for the 2015 F1 championship, after the team unveiled the new SF15-T car.

The Scuderia Ferrari team struggled last year, failing to record a single Grand Prix victory and only notched up two podium appearances all season.

The 2007 world champion said the team has made key changes in preparation for the upcoming campaign and is hopeful the new car will improve Ferrari's fortunes.

"For me being a Ferrari driver this year isn't too different from last year," Raikkonen said. "I know most of the team but it has changed from last year. The way the team works has also changed from last year and I think we are going in the right direction.

"We still have a lot of work to do but I enjoy working with the people and the team. It is a very nice team to be in, and I'm happy to be with the team I won the World Championship with."

Raikkonen will be joined by four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, who has switched from Red Bull Racing. The Finn said Vettel is the driver he most gets on best with on the F1 grid and is excited to be working alongside the German.

"I'm looking forward to working with Sebastian this year," he added. "It will be interesting working together for the first time but we have a good understanding which will help. The main aim is to get the team moving forward. Then we will try to fight against each other, in a good way, to push each other on to do better things.

"Sebastian has had a great career so far and he has a few more trophies than I do. He still has a long career ahead of him and I'm happy for him to join, we'll both try to do well and put the Ferrari at the front."
