Raikkonen: I have a puncture, somebody hit me from the rear.
Raikkonen: My endplate is also broken, looks like somebody hit me here.
Raikkonen: Everything is --- breaking down, with the tyre flap.
Team: SOC [state of charge] 5, Kimi, SOC 5.
Raikkonen: Don’t know how bad the damage is but send me out and we’ll sort it out.
Team: Yeah for sure.
Raikkonen: OK we have the endplate is bending back inside when the speed comes up so how bad was it? Because, it is going to come off very soon or if it was just the end part?
Team: OK [unclear].
Raikkonen: OK I can see from the mirrors it’s hanging.
Team: And slow button on, Kimi, slow button on. OK Kimi so we are checking also on the data and the video, for the moment we say out.
Raikkonen: OK but I can stop and we don’t lose position, you can check it. I come in and you check it better.
Team: No Kimi we don’t need Kimi.
Raikkonen: OK if you can somehow, I don’t know if I have a rearwards camera on my car but you can see what happens when I go, it’s bending completely sideways inwards, inboards, the endplate, when I’m spinning up.
Team: Yep it’s clear we are checking on the pictures.
Team: Basically the structural parts are the pillars so what we are checking are the pillars, the endplate is not structural so we are…
Raikkonen: OK, OK.
Team: So this is the situation Kimi. Where you have the damage is not structural. The structural part looks OK. What… we see that we are losing downforce but we are not concerned about the structural situation of the wing.
Raikkonen: OK, how much are we losing? To give me an idea whether to be careful or not.
Raikkonen: The car doesn’t go straight even on the straight line.
Raikkonen: I have no grip from the tyres. Really struggled to go through Eau Rouge, stay on the circuit.
Raikkonen: I don’t know, did you drop the rear wing or not? I have zero rear.
Raikkonen: Yeah it’s impossible to drive.
Team: If you want we can try to box and we drop the front wing.
Raikkonen: Yeah something I can’t go anywhere like this.
Team: Box Kimi, box.
Raikkonen: Raikkonen pits
You got the tyres also or something that has grip? It’s…
Team: No Kimi, we go, we go. Go, go, go, go, go!
Raikkonen: Raikkonen returns to the track
But my DRS is open on the straight. Even I don’t push it, no wonder I have zero rear end. It’s all the time open.
Team: OK Kimi, we retire. Slow button on. And box, Kimi, box.
Pathetic really, it is like they only care about vettels car.
