Raikkonen returned to Formula One this season Lotus having spent the last two years competing in the World Rally Championship. However, his time away has by no means dulled the Finn's ability.

The 2007 World Champ was in the points at his very first race back while four races into his comeback the Finn was on the podium, having finished second in the Bahrain GP.

And with his team-mate Romain Grosjean right behind him, all signs indicate that Lotus are in for a strong season which has prompted Salo to suggest that Raikkonen has a real shot at the title.
