Kimi: everything can change in a second


Source: www.planet-f1.com


A frustrated Kimi Raikkonen is hoping for a repeat of last season following what he describes was "one of the worst weekends of my career."

For the first time since 1992, Ferrari came away from the opening grand prix of the year without a point on the board.

Raikkonen, after initially suffering a hydraulic problem in final practice for the Australian Grand Prix on Saturday, then endured a differential issue in the race that forced him out late on.

Throw in Felipe Massa's retirement and it is no wonder Ferrari are eager to return to the track this weekend in Malaysia in a bid to put their misery in Melbourne behind them.

It is a similar story to last year as they collected just one point from the race at Albert Park before kick-starting the season with a win from Raikkonen at the Sepang Circuit.

Naturally, the Finn would love nothing more than for that to unfold again as he said: "Just like last year, everything can change in a second."

"The whole weekend at Melbourne was very disappointing for me. It was maybe one of the worst weekends of my career."

"It was the first race of the Championship for many years where we haven't gained any points, not even one."

"But then it's not just the fact we didn't gain any points, we didn't even have the fastest car on the track."

"Obviously it is not the best way to start, to be honest it's quite frustrating, but we can't do anything about it now."

"We have to work to improve. There are many things to do now, but I know I can rely on a great team working in the right direction."

"We only have to look at last year when again things didn't go well in Melbourne for us, and then we won in Malaysia."

"I've always liked the circuit having won there twice before, even though it's very demanding, with the weather conditions tough. It's hot like in a Finnish sauna!"

"I don't know how competitive we will be because the cars have changed quite a lot compared to last year, but we'll give it our all to win."

On a track with long straights and sharp bends, Raikkonen feels the Ferraris will be aided by the new KERS system at Sepang, which was one component that worked well around Albert Park.

Whether they will be a match for Brawn GP who dominated on their debut in Melbourne is unlikely, but just as one swallow does not make a summer, so one race does not decide a Championship.

"I wasn't surprised by the Brawn GP," added the 2007 World Champion."

"We saw during the tests how fast they were, and now they're the favourites, we've a tough competition ahead of us."

"But the Championship is completely open. We've done just one race and even if I had preferred to start on the right foot, there are still many left."

"For any predictions, we have to wait until we get back to Europe."
