Maranello, July 8, 2016
Scuderia Ferrari announces that it has renewed its technical and racing
agreement with Kimi Raikkonen. The driver line-up for the 2017 racing
season will still consist of the Finnish driver and Sebastian Vettel.
Iím really happy for the renewal of my contract, Iím happy to be here now
and to stay for next year. Itís nice to know that the team believes in me and
I believe in them. Now we can put all the effort in the racing and try to
achieve better results. On the track it has been a tricky day, conditions
were not very easy, there was quite a lot of wind in some places and this
was not helping. We are not very happy of where we finished today, but
since this morning we have been improving things. We have been working in
the right direction all day and Iím sure we can do even better for tomorrow.
I think it was a bit of mixed conditions this afternoon: it was quite windy,
and at the beginning it was not so good. I believe the long run was sort of
OK, but we need to have a look and do some comparisons to know where
we are. We know that we have lot of work ahead of us for tomorrow to
improve the car but, as a baseline for today, we understood and learned
quite a lot of things. As for the Halo device I tested this morning, it has quite
a lot of impact in terms of visibility.
