Kimi Raikkonen“The team is fighting in both championships: I’d be glad if I could do something for Felipe, that he can win the title and Ferrari will be again victorious in the Constructors’ championships in the last race of the season.” Once again Kimi Raikkonen is getting ready to play a key role at the upcoming 2008 Brazilian Grand Prix. A Grand Prix that remains memorable for the Finn driver: last year he won his first Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship. “I had the best weekend of my life,” said Raikkonen in a Ferrari notice. “I’ll never forget this moment,” he added.

The reigning world champion has already lost his hopes to fight for the title so, at the final round in Brazil, he will help both his teammate Felipe Massa – who trails Lewis Hamilton by seven points – and his team Ferrari, currently leading the Constructors’ Championship. “Going back will charge me even more I guess. We’ll try to repeat our one-two win from last year and then we’ll calculate the outcome of the standings and we’ll see where we are in the two championships.”

“I’ll have the same approach as in the last two races,” continued the Finn. “The qualifying will be fundamental and it would be nice to start from the front row once more: if this should happen, let’s hope that the situation after the first corner will be different.”
