Hakkinen is pulling for his countryman in 2014.

Feb.11 (GMM) Not everyone thinks Kimi Raikkonen will struggle to keep up with Fernando Alonso at Ferrari this year.

Despite the fact the returning Finn Raikkonen is the Italian marque's last champion, departed Felipe Massa recently tipped Alonso to lead this year because he "combines talent with brains".

Raikkonen's countryman Mika Hakkinen, however, the 1998 and 1999 world champion with McLaren, thinks Ferrari will win with a Finn.

"I think Kimi's driving style is really perfect for these turbo cars," he is quoted by the Spanish daily Marca.

"Alonso pushes too hard, so I think Kimi will beat him."
