Past F1 drivers do have a tendency to come out with these kind of dejointed comments though. Like Lauda, again insisting Schumacher is going to quit at the end of this year.
But I agree with GeeMac and I think he was just playing to the Brazlian crowd more than anything. Without Massa’s help, Raikkonen possibly wouldn’t have won the Brazlian GP, but that still would have left him with one more win than either of the McLarens.
Yeah, stuff seemed to conspire to give Räikkönen his WDC, but previously, stuff had conspired to keep it from him. Swings and roundabouts as they say.
