Formula One News » Kimi Raikkonen: Lotus “feels better than last year” Posted on 08/02/2013
“It feels better than last year at this time,” said Raikkonen, when asked by AUTOSPORT for his general feelings on the new Lotus.
“I think we have a good car, but how good it is this year we will only see it during the races and during the season. But it is not a bad start.”
“The changes are not massive but it feels better,” he said. “We are missing some parts but there is no bad point on it. It is a normal first day.
“We did one change and used only the hard tyres.
“We still don’t have all the parts that we will run in the races and we had last year, so it only can get better. It is not too bad.”
“We did some work on the seat, like is normal for the first test,” he said.
“You make the seat at the factory and then it feels OK, but you can only tell when you drive. It is OK now for tomorrow and we can start the day properly.”
