I don't know anything more than you guys." Raikkonen's latest performance could jeopardise his position and the message of the team was clear: "it all depends on him". "I hope I'll know at some point what will happen," the Finn continued, "but it's all speculation at this time of year, and always the same stories, so it doesn't really surprise me a lot. Let's see what happens." Raikkonen was speaking after his collision with Alonso in Austria, hoping to redeem himself in the upcoming British Grand Prix. "It's a new race, a different weekend, so it doesn't really matter if you've had an accident," he pointed out. "Obviously, it was bad for our race, but that's part of the game, it doesn't change this weekend.
I've had accidents before and I probably will in the future. We pay the price when things go wrong. We've improved the car and it's still a great car, probably not fast enough to challenge Mercedes, but it's a very good car and a massive improvement from last year. Things go wrong sometimes, but it doesn't mean you suddenly hate the car. It's a good package, but obviously we want to improve and make it faster. We've come such a long way since last year, but people forget all this. We're still a work in progress." Asked about his election as the Formula One driver most popular among the fans, he commented: "I think it's a good thing, it's better to have fans than not to have them." (AGI)
