F1 Drivers Lukewarm About New Tyres
Kimi Raikkonen has added his voice to that of Robert Kubica in complaining that Bridgestone’s 2007-spec Formula One tyres do not suit his driving style. BMW driver Kubica was the first driver to air his concerns about the harder Bridgestone compounds following tests last December.
When Autosport asked Raikkonen at Jerez whether he thought that the tyres suited his driving style the Finn replied, “No, not really”. He added “I think we need to work on the car to make it work for me. It is getting better all the time but it takes time to get used to (the tyres).”
