Kimi Raikkonen has wished his new team-mate Luca Badoer good luck ahead of his first grand prix as a Ferrari driver.
Badoer, who last competed in a grand prix back in 1999, is making his return to F1 racing at this weekend's European GP, replacing the injured Felipe Massa.
"I'll have a new team-mate at Valencia. Instead of Felipe - and I want to wish him all the best for a speedy recovery again - there will be Luca Badoer," Raikkonen said.
"He has been the official Scuderia test driver for many years, and I'm glad that he finally got the chance to race a Ferrari. I really wish him good luck and I'm sure that we'll work well together."
As for his own European race, Raikkonen is hoping to continue with the form that carried him to the podium in Hungary where he finished behind Ferrari's old nemesis, McLaren, and helped the Scuderia to leapfrog Toyota for third place in the teams' battle.
"We got a good result in Hungary, which allowed us to climb back on the third place in the Constructors' Championship. This is the team's realistic goal for the final part of the season," he said.
"For myself I hope to win at least one race, after a third place in Monaco and a second at Budapest."
"In Hungary we seemed to be back to the duels we saw over the last two years, Ferrari vs. McLaren, but I don't think that this will be the case at the European GP."
"We're racing on a city circuit at Valencia, but with very different characteristics compared to the others and compared to Budapest, which is the fastest of them."
"This year we did quite well on tracks like this, just look at Melbourne - where I could have finished on the podium - Monaco and Budapest."
"Last year I didn't end the race at Valencia caused by an engine failure. So this year I want to return and maybe even gain a place on the podium. This is our realistic goal, although we know that it will be difficult."
