Although Raikkonen crossed the line eighth, a five-second time penalty for entering the pits beyond the commit line demoted him to ninth.
Along with the damage sustained, it left Raikkonen feeling there was more on the table for the team.
"I got penalised when I went over the white line when I entered the pit lane," he explained.
"But we still brought home two important points. That's the main thing. A shame when it is like this and we have damage straight away. We kept fighting but obviously, we always hope for a bit more.
"I think we could have finished even higher with a cleaner afternoon, but hopefully we will carry the performance to the next few events.”
Recounting the early stages of the race, Raikkonen believed the car, which has struggled at the back of the field for most of the season, would have been quick had it not been for the damage.
"It started very badly," he said. "I don't know what happened. The car that hit us in the second corner was probably surprised by how much we had to slow down in turn two and obviously I lost some parts and a front wing.
"Then there was the restart and the red flag and we had quite bad handling because we had no front end on the car and we kept adding and adding. We had a bad pit stop, then there was another red flag.
"We had decent speed when the car was somewhere where it should be but we had damage. Without it, I am sure the car would have been pretty quick."
