I am not a Raikkonen fan, but in 2005, Raikkonen suffered car failures while leading three races. He also suffered with grid penalties on numerous occasions. His car was fast but fragile, guess who designed it? That’s right, Adrian Newey (who also left around when Mclaren started having better reliability). Regardless, he extracted the maximum from the car whenever it didn’t fail (and far more than JPM, a decent enough driver). Hardly a case of him not “lifting his finger”. He was voted as F1 driver of the year, too.
In 2007, Ferrari had a car that wasn’t better than the Mclren MP4-22. But he still won six races (two more than anyone else) to take the title. You don’t win 18 career races and a title without “lifting a finger”. Well, if he didn’t, then it shows how damn good the guy was.
