Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali says that Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen and McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton are major competitor to his team for 2012 Formula 1 title.
Fernando Alonso now top on the drivers’ championship, 32 points ahead of Lewis Hamilton, recent McLaren, and Lotus domination shrink the Spaniard big lead.
“I have to respect all of them,” said Domenicali,
“I always said Kimi step-by-step is a dangerous driver, and he is getting closer and closer. Hamilton, with the car he has now, is very, very strong and we have seen in the last few races that anything can happen. So all the drivers that are in the top five/six I think need to be taken very seriously.
Domenicali also added that Red Bull’s both DNF at Monza help Ferrari’s Constructors’ standings expectation.
“I have to say for us that because of the retirement of Red Bull, the constructors’ is difficult but still open for the four top teams, so it is another motivating factor for all of us, to make sure we are performing as we can and that is what we will do.” Domenicali added.
