Cold shower for Lotus

The race car was very good on Friday and became incredibly difficult on Saturday and Sunday. Ever since the last free practice, for some reason, he hasn’t behaved the way we expected. We especially lacked grip when the track was wet. The race was really hard, but because I lost part of the wing at the start, it was even harder. However, we ended up scoring a few points, which is still better than not winning anything. If we manage to prepare the car the way it was in Australia, we will be at the top again, ”said Raikkonen after the race, who finished seventh after a bitter fight with Nico Hulkenberg.

“We can be satisfied with today's achievement. The race was exhausting as we started in the wet and finished in the dry. But such conditions are expected in Malaysia. I was stuck behind Felipe Massa for quite some time. If I had managed to overtake him sooner, I’m sure I could have stayed ahead of him until the end. But in the end, my tires were completely worn out, so it was better that I simply dropped it forward. We didn't want such a result at the beginning of the racing weekend, but in the end we provided the team with new points, and we will try to be better in Shanghai. ”
