Japanese GP: A Sad Sunday in Suzuka

Marco Mattiacci: “For our team, this weekend was unfortunately characterized by reliability problems, yesterday on Kimi’s car and today on Fernando’s. With Kimi, we paid the price for not having been able to get his car configured as well as possible in the third free practice session. That meant he suffered with balance problems throughout the race. Today, with Fernando, we had a bit more of a chance and what happened today just underlines the fact that we must improve the car.

Apart from a small technical glitch on Kimi Raikkonen’s car, both F14 Ts were trouble free as the Finn and team-mate Fernando Alonso reacquainted themselves with this unusual figure-of-eight layout.
