Kimi Raikkonen Sky Sports interview and footage of the 2007 world champion back on the track in an F1 car for the first time in 2 years.
Raikkonen: "It’s nice to get back in the car, it’s quite a few years since I’ve driven last time. Of course it takes a little bit of time to get used to it, but the main bits of driving – braking, turning, the normal things – it doesn’t take many laps. But learning about the car, the team and the tires will take time.
"I had no plans for the future, I have no plans now for the future. There were different choices for this year, but I really wanted to do racing - I did some NASCAR last year and I really enjoyed competing against people again. It was then that I decided to do some racing again and F1 is the highest level of racing and where people want to be."

Raikkonen states in his usually understated tone "It's something that I used to do before and it will be interesting just to do some running and get back to it"
"It was nice to get finally – Finally back in a Formula 1 car"
