Raikkonen eyes title shot

Kimi Raikkonen (100/1 – World Championship Outright) believes his dramatic World Championship victory in 2007 shows he is still in with a chance of winning this year.

The Finn staged a remarkable comeback by winning the final two races that season to snatch the prize from right under the nose of Fernando Alonso.

Raikkonen (16/1 – Indian Grand Prix Outright) returned to Formula One at the start of 2012, following two years splitting his time between NASCAR and the World Rally Championship, and although he is yet to win a race, he has impressed and now sits third in the standings.

However, this doesn’t quite tell the story as Sebastian Vettel’s recent form means the 33-year-old is currently 48 points off the pace.

With four races left there is still a long way to go before the title is decided and Raikkonen remains confident he can claim his second world title.

“We have to keep working hard and keep a high level of motivation,” he said.

“Personally I feel my own motivation is very high – like it has always been. I’m keen to get the best results I can.

“Of course, in 2007 the championship wasn’t decided until the last race so anything is possible. Let’s see what happens.”
