F1 » Raikkonen: Lotus has what it takes to win title

Kimi Raikkonen insists that the Lotus team won't have forgotten how to repeat the F1 title success it enjoyed with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso, but won't be drawn on his chances in 2013 just yet.

I don't think Kimi is one for PR babble, I think I heard him talk up his chances at McLaren once (after pre season testing in 2005) and at Ferrari after testing the 07 car. Let's see what he says in a fortnights time.

I like that Kimi regards Lotus as the same team which Schumacher and Alonso won their titles, the first two in Schumacher's case. Because Lotus is Benetton, Lotus is Renault, despite the legendary name and colours it has. Has anyone believed that Benetton could beat Williams in 1993/1994, or Renault could beat McLaren/Ferrari in 2005/2006. Both those cars had a smaller budget than their imediate rivals. Kimi and Lotus can do it again and this time after Williams, McLaren and Ferrari the victim will be Red Bull Racing. Go Kimi!
