Blow it Up

At McLaren Kimi Raikkonen would have drove the car to it's limit and not worried about blowing it up.  He babied the Ferrari at Sepang Sunday to keep it on  the track and score maximum points:
Raikkonen arrived in Malaysia with doubts surrounding whether his engine would cope with a second consecutive weekend of racing after suffering a water leak in Australia. With the track temperature registering over 50 degrees Celsius in Sepang, the danger of it overheating was palpable and as a result, Raikkonen felt he was hindered from the outset.
He therefore decided the wisest course of action was to take the longer-term view and record as many points as possible to stay in contention near the top of the drivers' standings. "We knew the engine wasn't 100%, as well as some other things, so we could not take risks or do anything stupid," he added."We knew when we came here we had some handicaps, so I think we maximized our speed."We did the best we could in the situation we were in and so the team did a very good job."
Thanks to Yahoo for the quotes. Next race is in Bahrain, next Sunday April 15.
