Raikkonen back on song at Monza

Fri, 12 September 2008, 07:11

Kimi Raikkonen on Friday marked the renewal of his Ferrari contract for two more years by returning to top form in practice for the Italian grand prix at Monza.

The Finn, who led his favourite Belgian GP at Spa-Francorchamps a week ago until the controversial closing laps, set the fastest time of the drier afternoon practice session at Monza.

“Today it looks like we’re fast,” the 28-year-old Ferrari driver told reporters at the circuit.

“It’s good, it’s totally the best that the car has been this year. Little by little, we found what we want from the car.”
