Damon Hill reckons Raikkonen has “a couple more world F1 championships” in him
Damon Hill believes Kimi Raikkonen has “a couple more world championships” in him, and reckons returning to the sport at the age of 32 should not be a problem for the Finn.
Raikkonen left Formula 1 at the end of the 2009 season to compete in the World Rally Championship, but he will make his comeback next year after signing a two-year deal with the Lotus Renault team. Raikkonen, regarded as one of the quickest drivers of his era, won the title in 2007 with Ferrari and has 18 grand prix victories to his name. Former world champion Hill thinks Raikkonen’s return is good for Formula 1, and he believes the Finn can still be champion again.
“It is great – and good luck to him,” Hill told AUTOSPORT. “He is going to have to show that he has still got it, which he has got a good team to show that in, and he is still young. “He has won a world championship already, and I had only just got into F1 at his age, so he has definitely got a couple of more world championships in him.”
