A proposito di Rosberg–30/11/2016
Kimi Raikkonen can’t understand Nico Rosberg F1 doubters
Ferrari Formula 1 driver Kimi Raikkonen says he does not understand how Nico Rosberg could be considered not to deserve the world championship.
Some have questioned whether the reliability problems that cost Rosberg’s Mercedes team-mate, Lewis Hamilton, points this season casts aspersions over Rosberg worthiness as world champion.
But Raikkonen, who won the crown in 2007 during his first stint at Ferrari, shot down this idea.
"He scored more points and I don’t understand why he wouldn’t deserve it," said Raikkonen when asked about Rosberg’s title win.
"They [Rosberg and Hamilton] had the same car and he came out on top, so fair play.
"He was better this year, as simple as that."
