Kimi Raikkonen has no regrets about his comeback season in Formula 1 as he has left the disappointments of the year behind him.
The Lotus driver is yet to win this season, although he has had his chances in Bahrain and Spain, but is looking ahead to what the rest of the campaign has to offer.
"Well, I am in fifth position so, for sure, it could be better - but also worse," he laughed but did admit that the results should have been much better.
"Let’s be frank: it is always easy to say we should have been better here or there, but reality sometimes bites," he was quoted saying on the official F1 website. "You have to learn to stick with your decision - and it is never productive to cry over spilled milk."
The Finn also dismissed the suggestion that Lotus has had a stroke of good fortune to climb up to third in the constructors' championship.
"I don’t believe in luck, because luck seldom has much to do with the championship standings," Raikkonen said. "It is not lucky or unlucky when something goes wrong. It is all about that we’ve done something wrong ourselves.
"If something breaks it has nothing to do with luck, but everything about mistakes or parts not being strong enough for the demands. Usually it is a human error - it’s as simple as that," he explained.
