May 14 (GMM) Kimi Raikkonen is perfectly on track to win a second successive drivers' world championship in 2008, his countryman Keke Rosberg thinks.
Finn Rosberg, the 1982 world champion and father of Williams' German born driver Nico, said that notwithstanding Raikkonen's lacklustre run to third in Turkey, the reigning title winner is plotting a solid course to another crown.Reigning champion Raikkonen, 28, is seven points ahead of his Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa and McLaren's highest-placed challenger Lewis Hamilton, after winning in Malaysia and Spain and finishing on the podium at every other race except Australia."Kimi does not win every race," Rosberg, 59 and today a commentator for German television, observed to the Berlin newspaper BZ.Keke Rosberg said Raikkonen will not be too unhappy to have finished third at Turkey, a circuit at which his teammate Massa usually excels."A champion is someone who scores well on his bad days and wins on his good days."For Kimi, everything is going exactly to plan," he concluded.
