Kimi Räikkönen says that Ferrari is focusing on fixing its own issues with the F14T, rather than thinking about winning the world championship.
Räikkönen has endured a difficult start to his second stint with Ferrari, having amassed only 17 points across the first six races, leaving him in 12th in the championship.
“It's very hard for anybody to challenge them [Mercedes] for the championship,” he said. “I may be wrong, but that's how it goes.
“In the past, you've seen it can all change. Our aim is to fix the things that we think are the issues and get better all the time, and do the best that we can do racing.
Räikkönen says that Ferrari won’t be happy until they are winning races and competing for the world championship.
“We have issues, and we are not as fast as we want to be, and we just have to fix them obviously,” he said. “We would be happy [if] we were winning races, and we're not, so it's those things that we have to fix. It's a long process. It won't happen in three weeks.
“I think we're never happy until we're winning races and championships.”
