Raikkonen could have achieved more if he had worked harder says Nico Rosberg

Nico Rosberg believes that Kimi Raikkonen could have achieved so much more in the sport if he had tried a bit harder. The 'Iceman' is one of the most naturally fast drivers on the grid but his relaxed attitude seems to have cost him more success according to the 2016 World Champion.  

“You would have to say that Kimi could have achieved more if he had worked harder,” Rosberg told Ilta Sanomat. “On the other hand, he is being himself. There is no right or wrong way.

“No one can say that anyone has to work like crazy. He does what he wants and what is good for him. You have to appreciate that.

“It’s not the way that I approached this sport,” Rosberg insisted. “It was important to me to work as hard as I could.”

It seems that Raikkonen is just in love with speed and racing and although it is not always obvious, I believe that the Finn does work hard behind the scenes as he wants to beat as many people as possible. 

Rosberg has started to make a number of comments about current drivers and it seems that he has started to gain the confidence to criticize.
