Italian Press Heap Pressure On Kimi
Italian newspapers have begun to put pressure on Kimi Raikkonen after a series of lacklustre performances.
The Finnish driver has not won a race since the Spanish Grand Prix, and after spending most of the race behind Fernando Alonso in Hungary, he could only manage 3rd.
Many are wondering why he can be so good at times, in the final section of the Hungarian GP he was setting fastest lap after fastest lap, but why he seems unable to string a decent qualifying lap together.
With La Gazetta heaping praise on Felipe Massa, and Fernando Alonso hot on the heels of a Ferrari seat, is there still room for the World Champion?
“He seems a pale imitation of the driver of the past,” Tuttosport, an Italian national sports newspaper commented today
“This Raikkonen is not the driver that Ferrari needs. He needs to ask himself whether he really still has the desire to race.”
