The 40-year-old is currently at Alfa Romeo at is in the fourteenth position in the drivers' standings on 31 points, but a strong end to the season could see him reach as 9th with just four races remaining.

 “It's not a big deal. People make it bigger than it is. I don't feel that old at all either, " He told Sky Sports.

 "I feel old for years, about fifteen years, so this doesn't change anything. My head is still young and that's what it's all about. ”

 "The Fin's team are 8th in the current constructors' championship and so it will be difficult for them to really reach much higher with Racing point a further nineteen points in front."
