Raikkonen assured of DHL Fastest Lap Award

"His championship hopes may be all but over, but Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen does have something to celebrate - clinching the DHL Fastest Lap Award for the second consecutive year.With three races still to run, Raikkonen has already racked up an unbeatable 10 fastest laps this year, his most recent in Singapore.

With no other driver having recorded more than two, Raikkonen will collect the highly-coveted DHL Fastest Lap Award trophy following next month’s season finale in Brazil.
On top of that, just one more fastest lap in 2008 will see Raikkonen break Michael Schumacher’s record of 10 fastest laps in a season, set by the German during his dominant 2004 campaign with Ferrari."

Something positive at the end of a dismal season for Kimi. I hope the next season will be much better for him. I sure miss seeing him finish in the top 3 position.

With Kimi's chances of defending his title purely mathematical (Hamilton leads him by 27 points with only 30 points to play for), I am hoping that Hamilton will win the championship. Not that Massa doesn't deserve to win, he does. But of course, I'd rather have Raikkonen as the only Ferrari driver with a world championship title. Yeah, purely selfish reasons :-)

Engines will rev up for the Japanese Grand Prix this weekend. Can't wait!
