Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali admitted he was very happy to see Kimi Raikkonen back on form at the Monaco Grand Prix.
The Finn, who has not won a race in over a year, finished on the podium for the first time since last year's Brazilian Grand Prix.
He also came close to securing his first pole position of the year, but was beaten by Jenson Button by just 0.025 seconds.
Domenicali said he was delighted to see Raikkonen show the kind of form that helped him take the title in 2007.
The Italian also claimed Ferrari is now on the right track following a poor start to the season.
"We're heading in the right direction, which is very important after the first part of this very difficult championship," said Domenicali. "The positive signs we've seen at Barcelona have been confirmed at Monaco.
"I'm particularly happy for Kimi, he had a wonderful weekend: he missed the pole by a blink of the eye and in the race he might have done better, if there hadn't been the problem during his second pitstop.
"On a track where talent is important Kimi has shown what he is able to do."
