Raikkonen: We can challenge for a good finish

Kimi Raikkonen is looking to continue the strong run of form he has experienced at the Spa Francorchamps circuit in recent years.

The Finn has won three of the last four races held at the legendary circuit in the Ardennes forest and he believes the team have the ability to challenge for the top-step of the podium again this year.

Last weekend in Valencia Raikkonen secured his second consecutive podium finish, bringing his Ferrari F60 home in third place behind the Brawn GP car of Rubens Barrichello and the McLaren of Lewis Hamilton, but the Finn thinks he can continue his competitive form.

"Spa is definitely my favourite circuit because it is quite different from other places," said Raikkonen.

"It seems to be a good place for me and of course, last year I was leading until I had an accident on the second to last lap.

"It’s a shame, because we’ve had a good thing going on there for many years.

"This year we are not so strong, but hopefully we can be up there and challenging for a good finish."
