2007 Formula One world champion Kimi Raikkonen admitted that he is much happier at Alfa Romeo Racing as the Finnish driver now has fewer responsibilities besides driving the car and focusing on the actual racing. Kimi Raikkonen was asked if he was happier after moving from Scuderia Ferrari to Alfa Romeo Racing at the start of the 2019 Formula One season:
“Obviously in the big picture we want to be faster and have better results. But if you take that away what [when it] comes to working it’s been very nice.” – Kimi said, as reported by racefans.net earlier today – “There’s not [as] many people [as] let’s say Ferrari or other teams, [there] might be some places you lack a bit on that side. But that’s what I knew is a difference, that’s what makes a difference between big teams and smaller teams. Apart from that it’s given me more freedom to do what I want outside of racing. I don’t need to run all kind of promotions all the time. I appreciate that much more than maybe people even think about. For me my own time is priceless. It’s definitely been much better.” – Alfa Romeo Racing Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen concluded.
