Raikkonen: Our objective can`t be a win

Raikkonen said:
"Realistically this year our objective can't be a win. We still have to make up ground compared to the leaders as far as the performance is concerned. That's why the team continued to work very hard over the last weeks to bring some new solutions to this race. The track should be better for the F60's characteristics than Silverstone, but we'll get a clearer picture during Friday's free practice sessions. To be competitive you need a car with good traction, which is very stable while braking."

"It's always difficult making predictions and promising something to the fans, but for us today a place on the podium is already a good result, considering that we've been there just once this year. There are still nine races until the end of this extremely difficult season for us. Our objective has to be to give it our all race after race, without thinking that the leaders are so many points ahead of us. I really trust the team's work and its capacity to close the gap between us and the leaders."
