Kimi Raikkonen hopes to return to the fight for this year's title with the UK Grand Prix next weekend. The Finn started the season excellently and kept the lead, but after difficult races in Monaco and Canada, his gap with the leader Sebastian Vettl increased. But Raikkonen is confident he will be fighting for high places in Silvesrton again.
“In the last races we did not go as we would have liked. More than attacking, we cared about limiting the damage. But the tracks in Monaco and Montreal are street racetracks. They are quite different from many other trails we visited during the year, so the result is influenced by many factors. On these two tracks you never know how you will do, but now we know and luckily we got a few points. The track in Silverstone is more common and we did quite well on other permanent tracks this year. ”
Lotus will bring the biggest development package to Silverstone, with the team having to compete with the fastest again. “We have a more“ lean ”race car case, so we should get something small,” Alan Permane explained. “It should help us especially if the weather is colder. We have new front fenders, a redesigned and improved suspension and suspension, as well as a number of aerodynamic improvements to the car. The combination of all of the above should bring us the biggest rise in form so far. ”
