Kimi Raikkonen says switch from Ferrari to Alfa Romeo hasn't changed anything

Apart from falling down the grid, Kimi Raikkonen says his switch from Ferrari to Alfa Romeo hasn't changed anything from his perspective. The Finn is enjoying some of the duels, as well as less attention from the media.

Many expected the 39-year-old to retire from the sport when his time at Ferrari came to an end, but he went and restarted his career by signing a two year deal with then Sauber.

The midfield battle is super tight during the 2019 season, and at almost every race, the best of the rest position changes hands. And this kind of competition is what is keeping the former World Champion interested.

"I think you see more exciting fights in quite a few races because the teams are in the middle bracket close to each other. At least there have been some catch-up actions this year - but overall, the side of working hasn't changed," Raikkonen told Gptoday.net.

"I think the work itself is no different. Basically, I do the same things, it doesn't matter which team you're in. For racing, I think there were some good duels. If it's like in Monaco, then you are even stuck in front of someone, because despite some good duels it is not a good circuit for racing. I would not say that much has changed."
