Kimi Raikkonen says his return to Formula 1 has been tough.

Kimi Raikkonen says his first year back in Formula 1 has been tough.

The Finn took a two-year break from F1, before returning to drive for Lotus this year.

The 33-year-old took his first win of the year in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix earlier today.

Speaking on the podium after the race, the 2007 world champion said: It's been a hard season and not easy times lately.

"Hopefully this will give everyone belief and turn the tables so we can win more races, if not this year then next year."

Despite winning today, Raikkonen is now unable to win the drivers' title.
