Raikkonen: "for the team, an important race"

Interlagos - Perhaps because the main focus this weekend is on Felipe Massa and the driver who heads the Brazilian by seven points in the classification, this afternoon's press meeting with the other Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro driver, Kimi Raikkonen, was the shortest of the season!

Asked how he was planning to tackle this weekend, the Finn's answer was as concise as ever: "For me, this is no different to any other race. I will be trying my best and like every racing driver in every race, I will be trying to win." Looking back at the whole season, Kimi admitted it could have been better. "I made some mistakes, the team has also made some mistakes, but team is the key word: we are a team and so we win and we lose together," he said. "The most important thing is to ensure we all learn from the mistakes to ensure they do not happen again. This year has definitely not delivered the results that I wanted or expected. So, although there is still Sunday's race to go, I am already looking forward to trying again next season. I am actually quite pleased this season is nearly over, because as I am no longer in the fight for the title, there is not much in it for me, so this weekend will be less interesting for me from a personal point of view, but of course, for the team it is an important race.
