Raikkonen unhappy with 8th on Ferrari comeback (VIDEO)

Kimi Raikkonen was unhappy to only finish the Australian Grand Prix in eighth place on his return to Ferrari after five years away.

The Finnish driver failed to qualify inside the top ten, but he managed to fight his way through during the race to finish in the points. However, due to an electrical problem on both Ferrari cars, he struggled to make much of an impression and was passed twice in the same race by compatriot Valtteri Bottas.

As he explained to NBCSN’s Will Buxton, there were a number of minor issues that Ferrari need to go away and assess ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix in two weeks’ time.

    Kimi’s car was ass happy all day long.

    Whether it was the regen braking ,the rear diff engagement settings or a suspension setup deal or the new tires, everytime Kimi came down to stop that car,it acted differently every darn time.

    Kudos to Kimi for driving the crap out of the evil handling little Italian pig and not binning it every lap.

        Ferrari likes to drone on and on and on, that their cars even their race cars drive like angels on wheels that any valid driver with the right amount of skill could win anything they entered in.

        Well, just like the last time Kimi was at Ferrari, the racecar he was driving was wanting to swap ends and act different every time he braked and tried to apex the many turns on the Australian track ironically as Fernando’s just wound itself up the track relatively peacefully, albeit slower then it needed to go.

        So while Fernando was enjoying driving a prancing horse, the Ferrari Kimi was driving was like a greased pig he was trying to grab ahold of it every time he slowed it to make it through an apex.

        I’m already looking for Kimi to get offered another twenty million dollars to sit on his porch for the rest of his contract drinking vodka and driving rally cars.

        I wasn’t feeling the joy of Kimi going back to Ferrari anyway.

        I think they just let him back to light a fire under Fernando’s rear end which is kind of odd because there isn’t another driver in F1 that wants to win every race as much as Alonso.

        I don’t see Ferrari having a good year if they don’t get a different team management crew over there.

        Kind of late for this season.

        Eh, who knows, I don’t.
