F2008 to suit Raikkonen better – Ferrari

Wed, 9 January 2008, 01:17

Piero Lardi Ferrari says the Italian team’s new car, the F2008, will be better suited to Kimi Raikkonen than was its predecessor.

Despite winning the 2007 world championship at the Interlagos season finale last October, Raikkonen, the 28-year-old Finn, struggled for much of the season following his switch from McLaren.

“He will have a car (this year) that better suits his driving style,” Ferrari, the only living son of the Maranello based team’s founder Enzo Ferrari, is quoted as saying by the Electric New Paper.

Ferrari, also a 10 per cent owner of the famous marque, added: “That was the problem at one time last year: his style did not suit the F2007 and vice versa.”
