Kimi and Ferrari

Rumor has it that Kimi Raikkonen's management sat down for a chat with Jean Todt in Montreal. McLaren's Finnish driver, winner of three grands prix so far this year, is high on the Maranello based team's wish list for 2007 and beyond.

''I'm not going to comment about that,'' Frenchman Todt, Ferrari team principal, insisted. ''Drivers are not the priority today, winning is. Saying that, I was happy for Kimi (in Canada), he's a good guy, although I'd prefer Michael to win.''

Further probed about the inevitable post-Schumacher era, though, Todt said he 'wouldn't tell … even if I had signed all the contracts.' He also insisted that Raikkonen is not the only young star on the grand prix grid.

''I see that (Felipe) Massa finished a brilliant fourth but nobody wants to write a word. 'People say my son runs his career and that's why he's here.''
