Kimi Raikkonen says he does not intend to boycott the German Grand Prix, even though he is threatened by the Formula One Racers Association. The Finn is not a member of the association, which met on Thursday and at which members agreed and issued a warning that they will not take part in the race if there are similar tire problems as we witnessed at the race in Silverstone, UK.
Raikkonen was among the racers who did not compete at the 2005 U.S. Grand Prix in Indianapolis due to tire explosions, but this time he says he will perform no matter what happens. “I haven’t seen her, but I’ve heard of her,” Raikkonen commented on a statement from the racers ’association. "I am convinced that the boycott will not happen anyway. In 2005, I was involved in a similar situation, where some people are still racing, so this time I will do it myself, no matter what happens. ”
The Lotus racer said that he was not worried about the durability of the tires even before Pirelli offered to improve the tire, and he also supported the position of the Italian tiremaker that some teams of tires do not use the tires properly. “I will race. Problems don’t just occur because of tires. Events are influenced by several factors. We haven't had a single problem all season, so I trust them. Racing is just a dangerous sport and many things can happen. The teams used the tires incorrectly, so there were explosions. I have no problem with that myself. ”
