Scuderia Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen has described the atmosphere at the Maranello based outfit this season as the best that he has experienced at any Formula One team.
The Finn is joined at Ferrari by his friend and four time world champion Sebastian Vettel. Raikkonen explained that during his last stint with the Italian team from 2007 – 2009 the atmosphere was good but that this season it is different as everyone is working as a team.
Raikkonen has scored points in two of the opening three Grand Prix in Malaysia and last time out in China. The Iceman was forced to retire from the Australian Grand Prix after the team failed to secure a tyre properly during his second pit-stop in Melbourne. However in Malaysia and China Raikkonen finished each race in fourth place.
While the Finn is happy he said the team are not 100% satisfied as they want more. Sebastian Vettel has been on the podium in all three Grand Prix so far this season. Raikkonen also feels that the team will be able to challenge for victories throughout the season.
