Kimi Raikkonen has climbed ten places to finish on the last step of the podium on Sunday night at the Marina Bay Street Circuit.

Raikkonen has endured a tough weekend, suffering from back problems and poor showings in practice and qualifying. Regardless of these difficulties, Raikkonen managed to transform them into a third place finish in Singapore, a result the Finn was content with.

“After the weekend, where we had some problems with myself, not the ideal setup and where we were yesterday, finishing third; I don’t think we could have asked for much more.”

“I think we did the best that we could - I don’t think we could have achieved much more today.”

Raikkonen, who made an early exit from the paddock after qualifying on Saturday, discussed his back issue during the post-race press conference.

“Luckily (my back affected me) not too much but now afterwards it’s not 100 per cent but it doesn’t matter. We have two weeks’ time to rest and get it right.”

Raikkonen, similar to Fernando Alonso, completed a 36 lap final stint on the prime tyre to effectively execute a two-stop strategy. Furthermore, the Lotus driver overtook Jenson Button around the outside of Turn 14 towards the end of the race to help set-up his podium placing.

“I think I had pretty OK speed so I could overtake a few people. In the end I was following Jenson and I could see that his tyres were going off so I just gave some pressure. I had to get past him quickly because some people changed to new tyres and they were catching us quickly. I managed to pass him and pull away and luckily nobody managed to catch me in the end.”

Raikkonen heads to Korea in fourth place in the Drivers’ standings, a mere two points off third-placed Lewis Hamilton.
