Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen is full of confidence admitting that he believes he has made a lot of progress with the problems he had with the set up that had troubled him a lot during the Australian Grand Prix after he finished the second free practice session of the Malaysian Grand Prix in second place.
According to the Finnish driver, the front graining was giving him a lot of trouble but on the basis of the session he had at Kuala Lumpur on Friday, he mentioned that he is getting to grips with the issues.
He mentioned that it was a better day for him and he had a positive feeling compared to the one he had at Melbourne a couple of weeks back. The former world champion stated that he was comfortable with the F14 T on the day but he admitted that even though they did not have any problems at all, they know they still have a long way to go and there remains a lot to do.
Raikkonen further commented that the handling was pretty good, even though, just as it was found on the race simulator that they will have to pay very close attention to degradation and that is especially a must in a place like Kuala Lumpur.
He added that the evening will be spent analyzing the data that they have gathered from the session and try and work out how to improve on things.
Team mate Fernando Alonso also was pleased with the performance of the car saying that it was a learning curve for the team and that is the case for every team at the beginning of the season when the drivers try and get used to the feel of the car and the new changes that are made in it.
