Niki Lauda eagerly waits Kimi Räikkönen's performance in the F1 season next week starting

- Just awesome, that Kimi has come back, Lauda told Austrian TV channel ORF's Sport am Sonntag program.

Lauda has frequently in the past given negative statements about Räikkönen, but not at this time.

- Kimi's natural speed has always been excellent, and even if he has newer spoken a lot in interviews, he is a very talented man. I also believe that Lotus is not so bad car, the triple world champion said.

Lauda continues to work as TV commentator in all F1 races.

- Watching Kimi should be fun. It is however important that he is now and then at the top, because then he interests us even more. If the car does not help Kimi at all and he drives in the mid field, he will be forgotten after three races. It is just so cruel in Formula One.

- But Kimi will certainly be refreshing for this season, because as the sixth world champion he wants to know how good he really is, Lauda said.
