London - Kimi Raikkonen has a good chance of a strong result once the summer break ends next weekend (August 26-28).

That is the view of fellow Finn and former Formula 1 driver Mika Salo.

Still the same talent

Commenting on the recent news that Ferrari has renewed its deal with Raikkonen for 2017, Salo said: "Fortunately Kimi has been given more time.

"After all, he has lost nothing in his driving ability," he told Iltalehti newspaper.

"However, a long period with no wins may have taken his toll, and he has a tough team mate (Sebastian Vettel). But in Belgium Kimi has a good chance, because it's a track that suits him well," Salo, also a former Ferrari driver, added.
