Kimi Raikkonen has confirmed he will use a new engine at the British Grand Prix, taking advantage of the 'one free engine change' rule introduced this year.
The Ferrari driver suffered a broken exhaust during the French Grand Prix last week, a problem which cost him a sure win and which caused some damage to the engine.
Ferrari said they would consider changing the engine for the Silverstone race, and Raikkonen has confirmed he will get a fresh unit in order to avoid problems.
"I'll use a new engine because the team doesn't want to risk anything, although the rules say that you will not be punished if you have to change the engine," said Raikkonen.
The world champion says that, despite not winning in France, he is upbeat about his chances of returning to the top at the British Grand Prix.
"I'll give it all to stay ahead in qualifying," he said. "Starting from the pole does make the race much easier, as we could see at Magny-Cours.
"I didn't win there, but I've already archived the disappointment. I'll arrive with a positive approach at Silverstone, because I know that I should have won in France."
