Kimi Raikkonen“Our goal is a one-two win that’s why I’ll give it all to help Felipe and the team to gain the results we want.” Kimi Raikkonen seems to be determined to help his teammate at the upcoming 2008 Chinese Grand Prix. The reigning world champion will help Felipe Massa to reach Hamilton in the Drivers’ Championship standings at the Shanghai International Circuit and will try to snatch more points for Ferrari for the Constructors’ Championship.

Raikkonen finished third during last Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix. The Finn, managed a podium finish at the Fuji race but the six points gained put an end to his title ambitions. “Sunday’s result was a “sayonara” to the drivers’ title although I knew since Spa that there wasn’t much hope left,” said the Finn. “I should have won them, because then I still could have decided over my own destiny. But after the retirement it was just a question of time. Since January I tell you that I give it my best to win the title again. And if I won’t win I’ll try it again next year. I know how to become a World Champion,” he added.

“We were so low that the result at Fuji got a whole new significance. Finally I managed to start from the first row and end the race with a podium finish. The team was really glad about the points we brought back home and that we managed to get back in the lead in the Constructors’ Championship. Let’s see what we can do in China, where I won last year. Shanghai is a very demanding track and I really like it.”
