Kimi Raikkonen is keen not to create any expectations after his comeback to Alfa Romeo following the team’s positive start to pre-season testing.
Kimi Raikkonen says that he has no sort of expectations with regard to the 2019 season together with his new team Alfa Romeo Racing.
The 39 year old Finn rejoined the newly renamed Sauber team where he had made his debut all those years ago, in 2001. In doing so he swapped places with Charles Leclerc, who is now the number two driver for Ferrari.
“I don’t have any expectation,” Raikkonen said. “We can only do our best, but I think the team has built a good car and I think that’s a good starting point. We still have a lot of things to work on, for sure more work to be done than maybe in a bigger team, but I think so far it has been good.”
Asked if he felt Alfa Romeo could be towards the top of the midfield order in 2019, Raikkonen replied: “It’s impossible to say from testing. Maybe we’ll get some idea from next week but, for sure, in two or three weeks, whenever the first race is, we’ll find out. I think from our side we’ve been pretty happy, but where we’re going to end up in the first race, we have no idea. So far everything is OK.”
