Raikkonen set to crown comeback with perfect record

The Finn’s rare feat, delivering him an almost certain third place in the drivers’ points standings, has coincided with his return to the sport, with Lotus, after a two-year rallying hiatus.
“Our record shows that the team can build a reliable car and that I know how to drive it,” said Raikkonen.
The Iceman has scored points in eighteen of the nineteen races so far this season. Only in China was he out of the points when he finished 14th.
