the season Alfa Romeo had at least a worthy start. Finnish veteran missed the Lewis Hamilton pole position-time 1,828 seconds and ranked Australian GP:no time-time in ninth place. Performance is a good indicator Alfa romeo's development. Years ago in the garage, both drivers remained in qualifying for the first section places 17 and 18, more than two seconds Räikköstä a slower time.
the Time trial of the first section of ice was quite close to Raikkonen, as he proceeded to the second section of the last, 15. as a driver. The first follow-dropped the driver was Racing to the Point Lance Stroll , which lost to raikkonen to just 0,051 seconds.
the opening section of the final moments were quite dramatic, as the grip on the track improving by the minute, and the later the track left it in better conditions for had made good time. Raikkonen on the first partition of events contributed to it, that he had in the last section, devoted than one set of tyres and I saw the Finnish giant time trial at the end of it all one quick round of thread.
– of course, It always affects how the tyre used during the weekend, when the number is limited. Many made at the beginning of the same mistake, and Kimi was one of them. She went a little too early on the track, and on hold then come awesome rise, when the track was cleansed. There goes one of the sets of tires to no avail, the evening magazine's F1-expert Jyrki lake grove said.
– Walter ( Bottas ) said it just the same. When you pulled your round complete, the following can be found already in the 0.2–0.3 seconds more speed. The track improved at the end was just ridiculously clear. It always improves a street circuit, but it was even surprising how much it improved in the first section at the end.Errors kostautuvatKimi Raikkonen spanked Alfa Romeo to the ninth square.

on the Whole lake grove to keep Raikkonen for the first Alfa Romeo -the weekend so far successful. It, what flavor for the weekend as a whole remain, it will, of course, only Sunday's competition. However, it is already visible that the middle of the pack in the – about place in the 6 to 14 – is a permit really a tight fight.
Although Raikkonen did the time trial of the last section, only one bet and if he fretted in the garage, I went to the adjustment in its slightly in the wrong direction, the difference between the seventh-placed Haas Kevin Magnusseniin was only just over two tenths.
– So far from Kim and Alpha find out from romeo to see the need to look at the positive things. It has been pretty damn positive, executing, lake grove amount.
– the competitors are so close all the time, that if you make the slightest error of adjustment, it shows really badly in the clock, and it fell easily to many place in the back. In that sense, it is a nice situation to have really do work hard and fight for them the best investments. Working and accuracy require a lot, but if it can do, the results look really good.the Wild bunch
When the middle of the pack is flat and when it includes several stables, and several drivers, competition for investments is fierce. It is also different than it kilvanajo, which Raikkonen is accustomed to the top. Moving parts is now so much that racing is of growing importance and tactical gameplay will become less important.
– It is certainly what Kim is wanted. He is certainly also aware that it's going to be. Now let's get a place from that start we had real heat in the middle of lake grove said.
– There is a hell of a lot of young, good guys around. They are cramped places even though you are an experienced driver. It is the experience against terribly hungry guys who pull the first bend of the braking so late. Kim should be accuracy and a good eye that she is able to see these situations and to play the game the right way.
Raikkonen, the situation in Sunday's competition at the start of is anything but enviable. Guarantee leaves Sergio Perez , the front Lando Norris , Magnussen and this team mate Romain Grosjean .
It is wild bunch of people around. Everyone knows that Magnussen is a pretty wild one, and when Grosjean received a small concussion, that might go to work as over as can be, lake grove says with a laugh and referring to crash jean-favorite known as French history.
Norris is young and hungry, but he played so damn adept at game time-on time and showed me their nails, that they definitely went a bit conservative tactics. I think that Mclaren played so as to obtain good results and avoid all the problems.Order no
My additional element of the first bend of the battle that the fact that the car is significantly higher etusiivet than a year ago. Wings is widened 200 mil, brought forward by 25 million and increase by $ 20 million. Here lies a great risk to Raikkonen and the other middle of the pack drivers.
– If the first corner someone is braking with cold tires, a little later, it is really easy to hit of the new wing. You have to be very careful, understand it surely everyone, but this thing I fear the most.
– the Driver himself did not see the wings. It is really difficult, especially at baseline, when you go to the first corner, where there is no space.Jyrki lake grove works season 2019 evening magazine's F1-expert. PASI LIESIMAA
