Kimi Raikkonen has ruled out winning the 2014 title.
Detailing a meeting with journalists this week, Ferrari officially quoted the Finnish driver as saying it will be “very difficult” to beat Mercedes this year, “but you never know”.
Raikkonen, in fact, was on a sponsor visit to Norway, and what he told the major Aftenposten newspaper was slightly less optimistic. When asked about the 2014 title, the 34-year-old answered: “It seems to be over. The Mercedes cars are too fast.
“We (Ferrari) want to be ahead, but my challenge on the championship seems to be over for the season,” added Raikkonen.
