Kimi Raikkonen I'm not worried because I have the speed

Pilot Ferrari Kimi Raikkonen said that it was not worried about their results.Kimi Raikkonen "If you look at the end results, it looks pretty bad. But put it to the side, rate each race separately. There were races when I was shown the result, there were failures, but overall we've always achieved competitive atmosphere on the track. The causes of failures lie not in me, for there are other aspects.I hope that our understanding of the machine will evolve. If we get the maximum return on their updates, then the results will come. We will make every effort, as always.Personally I am unhappy with the results - that's for sure. I want to win races, I want to be first all the time. But this year, it is not so. I'm not worried about it because I have the speed".

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Ralf Schumacher has defended Kimi Raikkonen.While the Italian team is not ready to leave Finn in 2018, there are reports that Sebastian Vettel will agree to a new contract, but only if Kimi Raikkonen will receive a renewal of his contract.42-year-old Schumacher has defended Kimi Raikkonen "as for talent, I think that Kimi is a brilliant pilot. He is already a world champion, but can certainly do better.Given his age, he perfectly copes with his work. For Ferrari it would be wise to keep it to yourself.This year he has a good car, but Sebastian Vettel was stronger. I think it's perfect for Sebastian, but Kimi could still win the race. Let's see what happens next season.I must say that the Formula 1 became very interesting when Ferrari and Mercedes began to fight each other".It should be noted that Raikkonen, who in October will celebrate 38 years, is now the oldest pilot of the championship.

Need to put feet to jump out of the car through the frame".Kimi Raikkonen "the First impression when checking visibility positive. Structure does not hinder to look around".Roman Grosjean "It's a dangerous sport, but it is safe in General, because we can drive on the highway at speeds of 370 km/h and avoid deadly accidents. As pilots we certainly don't want the security has ceased to improve, but we also cannot close our eyes to the DNA of Formula 1".Sebastian Vettel "I did not like. In terms of visibility, there are many problems."Jolyon Palmer "Formula 1 is safe enough. I prefer Halo, because this system looks visually less offensive, but it is not needed. It is a half measure. The system will probably be able to stop some items, but not all. The car is ugly, I prefer classical forms."Daniil Kvyat "I would suggest to leave open cockpits".

If they are afraid you see it. If they are angry, you see it. And it's really good. You know how they think and what they feel.Such people will never tell you one thing, meaning another.

My last race was very bad, I made mistakes in the first and second turns, for which he paid a high price.Tomorrow will be another story. It will be a long race, and obviously a lot can happen. You never know what can happen, and it is one of those tracks where the situation is changing at lightning speed. We will try to make the best choice. We have to be fast, but look".
