Kimi Räikkönen holds the prestigious position of World Formula 1 Drivers Champion.
The Finn was the surprise winner in 2007, who showed that consistency can outweigh wins in the highly unpredictable sport.
This same, slightly unconventional style, could occur once again. Räikkönen is currently 3rd in the overall standings despite failing to obtain a race win!
Once again it is his reliability that kept him in championship contention, thus far this season the Lotus driver has only dipped outside the points in one race.
Perhaps this time his more than 40 point deficit may be too much to make up with only four races left of this unpredictable season.
But don’t rule him out. His lack of charismatic media appearances mean he does not appear at the forefront of F1 coverage.
His desire to win is second to none. However I feel that with a lack appropriate upgrades from Lotus, this may be too much to ask. Next year, with drivers moving teams, his experience and raw talent makes him my one to watch next season.
