Kimi Raikkonen (2). Goodwood Festival of Speed, 2014Kimi Raikkonen still believes he can bounce back from his disappointing start to the year but admitted he hasn’t enjoyed his season so far.

“Obviously it’s been a difficult year,” said the Ferrari driver in today’s press conference. “Hopefully it will turn around at some point – it must, it cannot go much longer like this. It’s not fun either.”

“But this kind of thing has happened to me before and we always manage to turn it around, so I really have a strong belief that it will turn around. But we have to just fix the issues and get things as I want and I’m sure we can be back where we should be.”

Raikkonen suffered a 47G impact in a crash on the first lap of the British Grand Prix. He said: “I had some pain but it’s all fine.”

“It was in my ribs, the most, that was why I didn’t do the test. It’s all gone away now.”

“It hurt a little bit but quite often when it can be a very slow accident and you can get badly hurt,” he added. “It was just an unfortunate thing and nothing serious happened. It’s part of the sport.”
