Kimi Raikkonen thinks the only contact he will now have with the McLaren is seeing them in the back mirror! The expectation is huge on the Finnish driver but many believe he really has the capacity to win World Champion F1 as he gets a car capable to meet his great capacity of driving. That would be the ultimate dream of course for the 27year old Finnish driver. During the five years with McLaren, he just had nine victories totally but many think he could have win much more, if it had not been for the many breakdowns of the McLaren car.
Contrary, Alonso who is the new Formula One driver for the McLaren team, expects to see the Ferrari cars only in his back mirror!
Because of the many bad experiences of the McLaren car, Kimi Raikkonen does not fear the World Champion Alonso that much any longer. He is more worried about the competition with his own teammate Filipe Massa.
Kimi Raikkonen has now replaced the most successful World Champion of Formula One in history, Michael Schumacher. For one and a half year it had been a secret to the world and the curiosity was enormous who would be the next Ferrari driver after Michael Schumacher had announced his retirement. Will Kimi now be as successful? Jean Todt, the boss for the Ferrari Team has great hope to see Kimi Raikkonen take back the title of World Champion to Ferrari this year. Kimi has signed the contract for three years for the Ferrari Team.
