Austrian Grand Prix - A complicated afternoon

Vettel fourth, Raikkonen retires

Spielberg, 21 June –This afternoon’s Austrian Grand Prix was a difficult race for Scuderia Ferrari. Kimi Raikkonen was involved in a frightening accident with Fernando Alonso on the opening lap, luckily with neither driver sustaining any injury. Sebastian Vettel was also out of luck: a problem with the left rear wheel nut at his pit stop complicated his race, as his stop was inevitably too long and he rejoined in fourth place. From then on the German chased down Felipe Massa, but despite gradually closing on the Brazilian, the bottom step of the podium eluded him and he had to settle for fourth.

Kimi Raikkonen: “The accident is already forgotten”
Sebastian Vettel: “Better than it seems to be”
Maurizio Arrivabene: “Positives to be drawn”
