Kimi leaves Spa disappointed

Kimi leaves Spa disappointed

Despite posting his best result of the season at Spa on Sunday, Kimi Raikkonen will leave Belgium disappointed not to have finished at least on the podium.

After starting in eighth place, the Finn finished in front of his team-mate Fernando Alonso for the first time this season on Sunday to finish fourth on at a track where he won four times before.

That result was also the first time he finished in front of his team-mate Fernando Alonso since joining the Spaniard at Ferrari at the start of the season and his best result since finishing second in Korea last year.

Nevertheless, Raikkonen was disappointed to miss out on at least a podium, after being in second place after the first round of pit stops and in third place until the last couple of laps, when he was overtaken by Valtteri Bottas in the Williams.

Speaking to the BBC after the race, the 2007 World Champion admitted his disappointment at the result.

"It would have been nicer to finish higher up but it's disappointing," he admitted.

"They wanted me at the front to push for a win but I finished fourth. We have a pretty good speed in the race but when we are starting at the back after qualifying it's going to be tough."
