Hill: Raikkonen got a couple of more world championships in him

1996 world champion Damon Hill thinks that Kimi Raikkonen has definitely got a couple of more world championships in him.

2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen stop his F1 career at the end of the 2009 and join WRC. Recently he will make his return 2012 following signing a two-year contract with the Lotus Renault team.

“It is great – and good luck to him,” Hill told Autosport. “He is going to have to show that he has still got it, which he has got a good team to show that in, and he is still young.

“He has won a world championship already, and I had only just got into F1 at his age, so he has definitely got a couple of more world championships in him.”

“We want to see someone upset the applecart, although I think Adrian [Newey] is fantastic, and [Sebastian] Vettel, [Mark] Webber and Red Bull Racing is a great team at the front – and they seem to be fun loving,” he added. It is good to have that – but I know that they want to fight for it. They don’t want it too easy. So a good titanic battle between three top teams would be fantastic to see.”

“Yes, I thought it was very exciting. It was a brilliant season. The sport is good, but there is still a lot that needs discussing. It is fantastic entertainment, but I just know that Europe and Great Britain is important to the sport. I think that is worth emphasising – it is not all about the bottom line. It is about going to place where people understand and appreciate the sport and they should not be denied access to it.”
