What's This?

Kimi Raikonnen says pressure is not affecting Ferrari’s form. During a recent interview, the world champion insisted they will fight until the final moment and try to win the championship. The start of the season has been less ideal for the Maranello-based outfit, but they are not ready to call it quits just yet. Raikkonen himself still feels highly driven. Asked how he it feels like to be a ‘fill-in’ driver who’s doing better than the perceived number one driver in the team, the Finn simply answered, “Ha, I don’t feel like a ‘fill-in’! We are a team and we try to do well!”


Jenson Button admits being unsure about future in Formula 1. The 36-year old world champion says he hasn’t thought about his future in the sport beyond the current season. Button’s contract with McLaren is set to expire next year. And according to a report from BBC, team boss Ron Dennis is eyeing driver Stoffel Vandoorne to take Button’s seat. Dennis even said that the Belgian is “an integral part of McLaren-Honda’s future.” Meanwhile, Button simply says, “I’m living in the moment.”

Nico Rosberg admits team is feeling the heat from Red Bull. The Mercedes driver even says, “They (Red Bull) are coming at us very quickly.” Nonetheless, it remains to be seen how close the team can get to Mercedes during the Canadian Grand Prix. Rosberg also maintains, “I am very confident that we still have the best package out there!”

Lewis Hamilton says winning Monaco “doesn’t really change a lot.” The reigning world champion may have finally won his first grand prix for the season, but he admits that doesn’t mean much when Rosberg is still 24 points ahead in the standings. Going into the Canadian Grand Prix, Hamilton remains cautious. He tells Sky Sports, ” It takes more races to make a big difference in the sense of knowing where we’re going to have problems still.”
