Kimi Raikkonen is still in the title fight. With 4 races to go and 40 points still to fight for he can still in theory make up the 21 points gap that at this moment separates him from the championship lead. His team mate Felipe Massa however is only 1 point behind the leader Lewis Hamilton and Stefano Domenicali is now making it clear what this means:
“I’ve always said that our main interest is the team. Of course, that’s the most important thing and the drivers know it. At this moment, at this stage, you can see that we haven’t, in our situation, taken away points from one or the other, and for sure, considering from now up to the end of the season, in the way that it’s possible to do, of course Kimi will do his best to be as aggressive as possible but also consider the fact that Felipe is much closer to the leader, Lewis.”
One should never say never, especially during so unpredictable season we are having this year. But unless we are to see some drastic turnaround in Raikkonen’s fortunes, it is now down to Massa and Hamilton, with Kubica waiting in the background for some Monza like Ferrari / McLaren mishaps.
