Räikkönen Confident

Kimi Räikkönen is said to be feeling “very confident” for the upcoming French Grand Prix, following a successful test at Silverstone.

"Last week was a perfect week," said the Finnish driver. "We had a very good test in Silverstone: the car was much better than at the races in North America. So I'm really very confident of the race in Magny-Cours.

“We have new components, above all in the section of aerodynamics; and we have taken a step forward as far as the performance is concerned: if it is enough, we'll only know in France, when we go on the track under the same conditions as our competitors.

“This is the question mark you always carry with you after the tests. What we know for sure is that we think that we are competitive."

Räikkönen insisted he was growing in confidence with the Ferrari car and now has to convert that confidence into a race victory.

“I'm more and more confident with the F2007: we found a good setup, what you could already see in the race at Indianapolis. Now we have to transfer what we've seen at Silverstone to the next two Grand Prixs."
