Raikkonen not making any predictions ahead of Azerbaijan GP

Kimi Raikkonen says he will not be making any guesses as to where he or Alfa Romeo Racing expects to finish in Azerbaijan due to the unpredictable nature of the race.

Since joining the Formula 1 calendar back in 2016, aside from its relatively dull debut year, Baku has put on entertaining races throwing up unpredictable results and causing chaos throughout.

Raikkonen said he was not going to drawn into making any predictions ahead of what has been a very chaotic race over the past few seasons.

“I generally don’t like to make predictions, especially in Baku as anything can happen there," he said.

"In principle our performance is strong, the car is fast, but we constantly need to improve in order to establish ourselves as best of the rest and score as many points as possible.”

The Finn's teammate Antonio Giovinazzi said he was looking forward to returning to Baku, having taken race victory back in GP2 around the Baku City streets.

"I have very good memories as I won two races when I drove in GP2, I like the track and I hope that I can improve my performance and get the maximum potential out of the car.”
