Kimi 'excited' for Spagnolo challenge

Kimi 'excited' for Spagnolo challenge

Kimi Raikkonen is not expecting any issues when he teams up with new race engineer Antonio Spagnolo this season.

Returning to Ferrari after a four-year absence, Raikkonen will be working alongside a new race engineer.

However, the Finn, who famously told his Lotus engineer "leave me alone, I know what I'm doing" on his way to victory in 2012 Abu Dhabi GP, reckons it will be a good fit.

"We worked two years with him with data, he was the data engineer for me," said the 2007 World Champion.

"I know him from that time already so basically it wasn't too difficult and I've seen him at some races and we spoke to each other in the paddock last year.

"For him also it's a bit of a new challenge but he knows the systems and has a lot of experience.

"I think it should be fine.

"Obviously we have to start from somewhere and build things together but I don't see any problems or why it wouldn't be good.

"All new and exciting."
