Raikkonen: F14T not a disaster

Raikkonen: F14T not a disaster

Kimi Raikkonen insists the Ferrari F14T will give the team a solid base to work from next season, but concedes they have a lot of areas they need to improve on.

Sweeping changes were introduced at the start of the 2014 season with the biggest one being the move from V8 to V6 turbocharged engines. Ferrari, though, haven't exactly set the world alight with this year's challenger.

Raikkonen has struggled to come to grips with the car, but his team-mate Fernando Alonso has proved that it is not all doom and gloom with two podiums.

With only tweaks made to next year's regulations, Raikkonen believes they have something to work from.

"It's not a disaster, that's for sure," he is quoted as saying by crash.net. "Otherwise there would not be the results that the team has achieved so far. Obviously we know the areas where we have to work and it's a bit everywhere; we are not really bad anywhere but we are not fantastic either anywhere.

"So it's kind of a bit everywhere. It's a reliable car, in some places it works better and in some conditions it's better but we have a lot of places where we know that if we can improve those then it can make a big, big difference and improve the whole thing a lot."
