Ferrari’s 2008 car is better than its title-winning predecessor, Kimi Raikkonen said earlier this week at Jerez.

The Spanish sports newspaper Marca quotes Raikkonen, the 28-year-old reigning world champion, as discussing the early performance of his new mount, the F2008.

“The car has improved in quite a few areas, especially its behaviour in the slow curves,” the Finn revealed.

Raikkonen added that at the car’s next outing, in Valencia for the group test beginning next Tuesday, the car will be tried with some more new bodywork pieces.

“So far the car is behaving well and I think we are in a very good starting position,” he said.
