Raikkonen targets Lotus progress
Kimi Raikkonen believes Lotus must push on from the Bahrain Grand Prix having secured two places on the podium last weekend.
The former world champion managed to secure second place on Sunday, with Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel claiming his first chequered flag of the 2012 campaign. It was a fine weekend for Lotus, with Romain Grosjean finishing in third place in the searing conditions in Bahrain to put the Enstone outfit back on the map. Having impressed in Bahrain at the expense of rivals Mercedes and McLaren, Raikkonen believes Lotus must continue their progress this season but the Finn has admitted it will be difficult. He said: "We will try. It's the same story; I have no idea what's going to happen in the next races but the team's been pushing hard to try to improve the car, bringing new parts, but of course they haven't been working as well as we hoped. "The team is doing good work and we deserve to be here and hopefully we can stay up here in other races also."
