Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen insists that it is still possible for him to come from behind to win this year’s Formula 1 title.
Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso are favourites for the 2012 drivers' championship, with Vettel on 215 points with Alonso six points behind.
Raikkonen is 48 points behind the Red Bull racer in third place, but the Finn insists he will not give up with 100 points still to play for.
"There's no point setting targets - we just need to keep working as hard as we can to score strong points and see what happens from there," Raikkonen said.
"In terms of the championship, the gap to Sebastian is quite big now so it will be very difficult to catch him, but we'll keep pushing all the way.
"We have to keep working hard and keep a high level of motivation. Personally I feel my own motivation is very high - like it has always been. I'm keen to get the best results I can.
"Of course, in 2007 the championship wasn't decided until the last race so anything is possible. Let's see what happens."
