F1 engineer Slade says Raikkonen best driver

Highly experienced F1 engineer Mark Slade says retired 2007 world champion was in one way “the best driver I’ve ever worked with”. But he is most famous for engineering Raikkonen’s cars, even though he also worked with world champions Mika Hakkinen, Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher. “For me, Kimi’s the best driver I’ve ever worked with to set up the car,” he told Motorlat. He also said Raikkonen had a sixth sense for when something was wrong with his car. “Obviously he wouldn’t be able to specify what it was, but if you looked and couldn’t see anything to start with, you kind of had to look again,” said Slade. “It was a really enjoyable time, and he was just a delight to work with,” said Slade.
