2007 Formula 1 champion Kimi Raikkonen says the 2021 title will go to “whoever has the most points at the end of the last race”.
We can all agree that Kimi Raikkonen is pretty much a no nonsense kind of guy. In fact, so much so, that when asked how intense the current title battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen is, he gave a pretty much no nonsense answer:
“[It is] less [intense], for sure, because I’m not involved,” the Finn said.
“For me, it doesn’t matter. Whoever has the most points at the end of the last race [will win].
“Honestly, I think everyone that gets close is always going to be in a lot of tight battles and one will be upset one day and the next another day.

“But I think a lot has been written about it and making a big story out of not so many things in my view, but that is I guess F1, or the media.”
Raikkonen was also asked to comment on the Brazilian Grand Prix incident between Hamilton and Verstappen.
“I don’t know. Obviously, they both went off. They didn’t touch each other so there’s not much to say about it really.
“I don’t think there was anything crazy. I’ve seen a lot more worse things. I’ve been involved in worse things.
“As I said, a lot has been written on something that’s made much worse than it actually is,” the Iceman concluded.
