Raikkonen desperate to break duck
Kimi Raikkonen admits that Lotus must continue to improve if he is to break his duck before the end of the season.
The Finn returned to the sport at the beginning of 2012 after a couple of seasons splitting his time between Nascar and the World Rally Championship. He has certainly impressed this season, finishing on the podium five times but is yet to record his first victory. The 2007 World Champion is understandably desperate to claim his first win of the season but knows his team cannot afford to take a step back if he is to achieve his goal. "We should get some new parts and setting up the car the way I like it to be depends on the weather and on the circuit," said Raikkonen. "We know the speed is there in our car, we just have to find the right set-up to maximise it every time. "We give it our best shot to be on the podium, but the races are going to get more and more difficult with other teams constantly pushing with new development parts," he added.
