René commented on the post, Raikkonen sees aero improvements at Alfa Romeo

In the round-up: Kimi Raikkonen says Alfa Romeo heave begun to make progress with their car’s aerodynamics following a difficult start to 2020.

What they say

Raikkonen said the team have to work around the weakness of their Ferrari power unit:

Obviously it’s all the areas. We all know that the engine is not where we or of Ferrari want it to be. But that’s a thing that is out of our hands right now, out of anybody’s hands right at this moment.

We need to concentrate on the things that we can change. Obviously then it comes to the chassis and the aero. The aero is always one of the most important parts of the F1 car. But like I said, we’ve been improving it but there’s still scope to improve.

But then if you go and ask the guys who are winning, they found issues with their cars. There’s always complaints, it’s a never-ending story to improve the car. So it’s nothing new, it’s no different whichever car you take from the grid, there’s always things to improve and make it faster. So it’s just and endless thing that you always have areas to improve and make it faster.
