Kimi Raikkonen still believes that he can win the Formula 1 drivers' title.

Kimi Raikkonen has said that he will continue to fight for the Formula 1 drivers' title.

The Finn is currently third, 48 points behind leader Sebastian Vettel.

The Lotus driver told Sky Sports News: "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.

"In terms of the title race, 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.

"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."

In 2007, Raikkonen came from behind in the standings to win the championship.

The F1 season continues next weekend with the Indian Grand Prix.
