Former Kimi Raikkonen boss Gerard Lopez said he was surprised by Finch’s problems behind the wheel of a Ferrari F14T as he was a very strong opponent behind the wheel of his lotus.

The champion from the 2007 season returned as a Lotus racer in the 2012 season after a two-year break from racing in Formula One and impressed with his racing performances in both seasons, especially when the car was adapted to Finč's wishes at Enton.

After two years, he decided to return to Ferrari this year, where he does not find the right form, which surprises the owner of the Lotus team, Gerard Lopez. “Yeah, I’m definitely surprised,” Lopez admitted. "He showed very good form here, so we are surprised by the lag behind the best this year. I know how good Fernando Alonso is, just imagine what it would be like to sit in a Red Bull race car all these years. But I also know how good Kimi is. He finds himself in a new team and with Kimi a lot depends on what’s going on around him. He always felt comfortable with us. I simply cannot explain why things are not going in his favor, ”Lopez added.
