Raikkonen: I don’t have many good memories here

He took the podium in Russia only twice. In both 2016 and 2017 he finished third. Last year he came no further than thirteenth. Kimi Raikkonen is therefore not one of the biggest fans of the circuit in Sochi.

"I don’t have many good memories about racing in Sochi as for some reason it’s always been a fairly unlucky track for me", says Raikkonen in the Alfa Romeo preview at the Russian Grand Prix. Still, he doesn't want to dwell too long on previous results. "I am not someone who looks at past form too much: my focus is on having a good weekend and get the most of what our car can produce.”

The Finnish driver, despite his bad memories, is looking forward to this weekend with confidence. "Having made it to Q2 in the last few races, we have seen we can keep up with the cars around there and fight for a place in the points so that has to be the target for this weekend as well.”
