F1 Spanish Grand Prix 2013 – Raikkonen: Ferrari were just too fast

Formula One News » F1 Spanish Grand Prix 2013 – Raikkonen: Ferrari were just too fast

Kimi Raikkonen says there was no point fighting Fernando Alonso as it was “too easy to overtake” he was on old tyres and in the end the Ferrari was just too quick.

“Maybe halfway through, when we were leading, but we were on old tyres and [he had] newer tyres,” said Raikkonen when asked about winning the race

“It is too easy to overtake, so no point to really fight again because you cannot hold him behind.

“I knew if I could somehow stay a bit closer, maybe I had some chance, even if I am already behind them with old tyres. But in the end, they were just too fast.”

“We didn’t have a good start, but I don’t think the end result was decided there,” he said. “It wasn’t the win, and we are only happy with the win, but [in terms of the Championship] Vettel we are close and Fernando has caught me, but we are still in the hunt and hopefully we can try and win a bit more.”

    Kimi is so funny. He is not happy with 2nd but I am proud of him. So happy Vettel did not win.
