Raikkonen unfazed by the pressures of F1

YOUNG Finn Kimi Raikkonen has said that the pressure of Formula One will not affect him if he lands a drive with Sauber next year.

The 21-year-old has raced in only 23 single-seater events but has said that he will not be affected by the pressures of Formula One after successfully testing with Swiss-based Sauber.

"I am not worried about the pressure," Raikkonen said. "I have already been driving for twelve years, and I am ready for this.

"I know that there us a great difference in speed but I also believe that I am capable of making the transition."
