Kimi Raikkonen believes Alfa Romeo haven't shown their best side yet

Kimi Raikkonen believes his new team, Alfa Romeo, has a lot more to show during the 2019 season. After three Grands Prix, Alfa sits level with Renault at the top of the midfield pile.

Raikkonen has scored all of Alfa Romeo's points so far this season with Antonio Giovinazzi struggling with reliability issues. Little gremlins have caused the team to miss out on practice time.

The 2007 world champion insists their season can only get better once they iron out some problems.

"We need to tidy up on Saturdays and overall the weekend, in practice, and make sure everything gets absolutely right. Then I think we can be more forward because I think we have the speed. You try to catch up all race because you start behind," Raikkonen told Motorsport.com.

Raikkonen, who will celebrate his 40th birthday later this year, still has the hunger and drive of a young teenager. Even though he's the current 'best of the rest' driver, he wants more.

"You always want more. This I what we got, and happy or not – it doesn't change anything. If we could maximise everything over the weekend we could have got more," he added.
