Raikkonen: Too early to say where Ferrari will be in 2016

Kimi Raikkonen: We can do our best but we can't control what the others do, so we have to keep working the same way, always improving, then we will see where we end up in the next year
Kimi Raikkonen says it is still too early to say if Ferrari will be able to challenge for the titles in 2016.

The Scuderia closed on the dominant Mercedes team this season, winning three races - with Sebastian Vettel - and finishing second in the Constructors' Championship, albeit 275 points off their rivals.

Raikkonen himself also returned to the podium after a torrid 2014, with rostrums in Bahrain, Singapore and Abu Dhabi, but concedes it is difficult to know what will happen next year until they have done the winter tests.

“Obviously we all know where we want to be as Ferrari, Ferrari wants to win and it will not be easy, I mean, there are a lot of strong teams and all of them have the same idea of winning races and championships,” he said.

“Obviously, having done better this year, we have more expectations for the next one, but we are here for winning races, to win championships, so we will give our 100% to try to bring back the championship for Ferrari, but it's too early to say.

“We can do our best but we can't control what the others do, so we have to keep working the same way, always improving, then we will see where we end up in the next year. There's no point to start guessing, we have to wait until the winter tests - and then the first race”.
