Kimi out to catch the leaders

Kimi out to catch the leaders

Kimi Raikkonen is determined to get his Championship challenge back on track at Silverstone after a couple of difficult races.

After claiming one race win and three second-place finishes in the first five grands prix of 2013, Raikkonen could only manage a P10 and P9 in Monaco and Canada respectively.

The team, though, will be out to make amends at the British Grand Prix this weekend and the Finn believes they can close to gap to the front-runners.

"Silverstone is a more normal circuit and we've been okay at every other permanent circuit so far this year," he said.

"There's no reason why we shouldn't be back to the positions we should be with this package. We just have to be patient, do our very best over the entire weekend and step by step we can start catching the leaders."

Raikkonen has an excellent record at Silverstone, winning there in 2007 and appearing on the podium another four times.

"Yes, it's always such a good feeling going to Silverstone. It's a great place to race and it has been a good circuit for me since the very beginning of my career," he said.

"I have a long history there. It was the real base for the start of my international racing career in Formula Renault in 1999 and 2000. Since then I've always enjoyed racing at Silverstone. I don't know why; there must be this nostalgic feeling that I have every time we go there."
