Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal Maurizio Arrivabene has hailed Kimi Raikkonen’s performance at the Malaysian Grand Prix over the weekend.
The Finn started the race from 11th place on the grid after getting the timing of his run in Q2 wrong. He suffered a puncture on the second lap of the race and was forced to pit for a new set of tyres which dropped him down to the back of the field.
The Iceman kept his cool and utilised the incredible race pace of the SF15-T and overtook his rivals left right and centre and finished the race in fourth place while team mate Sebastian Vettel took the Italian team’s first victory since the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix.
Raikkonen has endured a difficult start to the season but Arrivabene believes that in the Finn and Vettel Ferrari have the best line up on the grid.
Arrivabene described Raikkonen as a fabulous driver following his comeback drive in Malaysia.
