Raikkonen felt it was a shame to have to retire in Mexico

Kimi Raikkonen failed to finish the Mexican Grand Prix after his race ended on 58 laps and he admitted it was a "shame" to not be able to finish the race. The Finn qualified in 14th place but was unable to build on this in an ultimately difficult day.

His teammate Antonio Giovinazzi did manage to finish the race but he could only record a P14 finish, on a tough day for Alfa Romeo.

It’s a shame to have to retire from the race because generally, we had been a bit happier with things this weekend, Raikkonen reflected after the race.

"Unfortunately, much of our day was decided at the start. I got squeezed between two cars and a big chunk of my floor was destroyed.

"The cooling was damaged too and later in the race the temperatures went very high and we had to stop the car."
