GP Gran Bretagna, commenti post gara
Kimi Raikkonen, whose gamble on making an early switch to intermediates did not pay off, dropping him to eighth, agreed that Ferrari struggled for top speed.
"We were faster than [Nico] Hulkenberg in the first stint but I couldn’t get past," said the Finn.
"We weren’t fast enough on the straights, where you really have the chance to overtake.
"The car was fine. It felt better than yesterday, all was OK, just the laptime was missing.
"I don’t know for what reason, but the handling was as good as it could have been.
"Then the rain came and we chose to do something but it was too early.
"I thought it would keep raining, but it was four laps too early.
"It was the wrong choice, but it’s what we tried."
British GP – An early call-perhaps too early
Kimi rues his decision not to stay out longer
Kimi Raikkonen: “In the early part of the race we were stuck behind Hulkenberg’s Force India, they were too fast on the straight and in the places you could pass, while we lacked some speed. It’s a pity because the handling of the car was good through the whole race and the behavior was definitely better than yesterday. When it started raining heavily, the track became very slippery, especially in Turns 7 and 8; so I took the decision to come in the pits for Intermediate, but then the rain stopped. Probably I made the call three or four laps too early. But in general, this kind of track is not ideal for us, and this is something we have to work on.”
