Kimi, can we start talking about winning?

Kimi Räikkönen took calmly the top time in Jerez F1 test on the opening day.

Räikkönen charged his new Lotus car to top speed immediately, faster than any in the last year's Jerez test. So can we start talking about victories or podium finishes on the beginning season?

- Hard to say. I have no idea. This first day has not changed anything. I do not know how we compare to others. Maybe we will know it in the last tests, or the first race. Then you'll see it. Hopefully we get a good result to be able to fight against the other top teams. It remains to be seen, Räikkönen said to MTV3.

The new E20 car worked well in the hands of Räikkönen.

- The car left a good impression. It worked quite well. There is of course room for improvement. If you run longer stints, tyres go bad and starts to slip. There is still work to be done to keep the tyres in better condition. But I would say that I have had worse first days, Räikkönen summed up feelings of his car.
