Despite problems with the reliability of the machine in the last two Grand Prix, Kimi Raikkonen believes that in the season of 2018, the Ferrari team will only get stronger.
A couple of stages ago, the Finn’s teammate Sebastian Vettel was leading the championship and was considered one of the main contenders for the title, but setbacks during the Asian tour pushed him far back, and now the German is inferior to Lewis Hamilton’s 59 points.
“Of course, we would like to take the first two places in each race, – said Raikkonen in an interview with La Gazetta dello Sport. But success depends on many factors, including from rivals. This year we are moving in the right direction, and I’m sure next season will get even stronger.
I have a good relationship with Sebastian Vettel, helping together to solve problems and to act in the interests of the team. We met almost immediately after his arrival in Formula 1 and became friends. But, of course, on the track, each of us strives to be ahead”.
