Raikkonen still look ahead to 2012 F1 title

Published

on

Returned F1 speedy Kimi Raikkonen now fifth on the drivers’ championship standings, 46 points behind leader Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

Kimi Raikkonen not ruling out his 2012 F1 drivers’ title opportunity, he believes the title chance still open for 2012 F1 and hopeful with reaming 11 races.

“I have no reason to say I wouldn’t try,” said Raikkonen.

“I’m not here just to drive around. But I have no idea if we’re going to be up there in the end or not.

“We’ll try to give ourselves a chance and do as well as we can. We know that we have to improve on certain things.

“We’re still not 100 per cent happy with how things have gone on all the weekends, but I would say that’s what I was expecting. You don’t think that everything will be perfect. It’s still quite early days in the season and we are still up there. You can’t rule anything out.”

“I think overall we’ve been pretty strong everywhere,” Raikkonen said.

“We just have to work and improve. If we do everything 100 per cent right we can improve the car at the same rate as the others and then we should have a chance.”

“Without that, I’m sure we would’ve had the speed to fight at the front,” said Raikkonen, who ultimately finished 10 seconds behind Silverstone winner Mark Webber in fifth place.

“We’ve just ended up losing out at the start in the last two races for different reasons and if you put yourself in the wrong position unfortunately you cannot use your speed.”
