Kimi Raikkonen reveals that he is excited to return to the Belgian Grand Prix with Lotus this weekend.

Kimi Raikkonen has admitted that he is excited to be racing in the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend.

The Lotus driver has enjoyed plenty of success at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, winning on five occasions in the race, and the Finn claims that it is his "favourite place" to visit in the Formula 1 calendar.

Raikkonen said: "Usually I've achieved good results at the Belgian Grand Prix, but what's happened before doesn't help me right now. Saying that, it doesn't do any harm either.

"Obviously it would be great to win at Spa for a fifth time. For me there have only been good memories from Spa and it's great to go racing there.

"For me it is the greatest racing circuit in the world. It is my favourite place."

Raikkonen is currently fifth in this year's World Championship.
