Published on 25 May 2017

Regularly on the top five since the start of the season, Kimi Räikkönen still has not tasted the joy of a win in 2017. If he achieved only one podium finish this year in Russia, the Finn wants to put on his good feeling with the Monegasque circuit to improve his statistics in the Principality.
« I really enjoy the circuit there, says the 2007 world champion. I have some good races and week-ends. I wouldn’t compare this place to another track because Monaco is incomparable. This track is such a big challenge for the drivers and there’s a lot of things that have to go right. »
Victim of a collision during the start two weeks ago in Barcelona, « Ice-Man » wants to avoid problems in this sixth round of the season.
« When the car is working well and you have a good feeling, it’s really nice to drive there, explains the Ferrari driver. But things can go bad quickly and then your week-end becomes very long. »
