Raikkonen eager to show ‘true pace’ in Austin

Kimi Raikkonen has claimed that Ferrari did not show their true pace at the recently concluded Japan Grand Prix and is hoping to do so at the USA Grand Prix next weekend.

The Finn started P8 in Japan after suffering a five-place grid penalty for changing his gearbox, but was stuck in the midfield for most of the race battling the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez, securing P5 at the end.

With Austin up next on the F1 calendar, Raikkonen insisted performance can change a lot from race to race but is optimistic that they will show similar pace to Suzuka, where his team-mate Sebastian Vettel came close to a podium finish had it not been for a strategic error made by Ferrari.
