Abu Dhabi Grand Prix: 12th position for Kimi
Sunday, 01 November 2009
A disappointing last race of the season saw Kimi Raikkonen finish in 12th position after a mediocre race. The Fin's qualifying position (11th) and an uncompetitive car meant that Kimi could not even get a single point.

KR: " At the start, the track was a bit slippery and that cost me a place to Kobayashi, who was very quick today. Then, when the two Brawns were back ahead of me, after their first pit stop, our race was definitely compromised and a points finish became impossible.."
"We knew we did not have a car that was competitive here. It was definitely not a good weekend, but I don't think any of us have anything to reproach ourselves for. We did the most we could with the package we had. At the start, the track was a bit slippery and that cost me a place to Kobayashi, who was very quick today. Then, when the two Brawns were back ahead of me, after their first pit stop, our race was definitely compromised and a points finish became impossible. It's a shame to end my time with Ferrari with this result, but this year we have never been in a position to fight for the win at every race, as I would have wished."
