Barcelona: Kimi Raikkonen shrugged off Lotus’s pre-season testing problems yesterday and said his new car felt better than last year’s going into Formula One’s Australian season-opener.
“We had some problems in testing but we still completed quite a few laps. Of course, you always want more laps, but it is what it is,” Raikkonen said in a team preview for Sunday’s race in Melbourne.
“I’m not really concerned about reliability or anything like that as it was the same problem which caused us the biggest problems in testing and we’re on top of that now,” the Formula One driver added. REUTERS
