Raikkonen: Lotus have closed the gap

Formula One News » Raikkonen: Lotus have closed the gap

Kimi Raikkonen believes that Lotus have closed the gap to the front runners and believes that the team should be competing up front come race day.

“I think even compared to the last races [of 2012], it feels like we are a bit closer,” he told Autosport.

“We saw Vettel being fast today but all the rest, everybody else, it looks tight and they are close to each other.
“But it is only the first Friday. So let’s see how it goes in the first two races and we will go from there.”

“For sure we can improve ourselves also quite a bit,” he said. “Red Bull were fast on the harder tyres, so you expect that they would have been a bit faster on the super soft. But you never know. Some other teams did not improve so much with the super soft. But it is what it is and the race is a different story. It is just the first Friday.”
