Maurizio Arrivabene must be thoroughly enjoying Formula 1's summer shutdown, if for no other reason than it affords the Ferrari team principal a temporary break from incessant questioning regarding Kimi Raikkonen's future as an F1 driver.
He was asked, again, for the umpteenth time, after the last race in Hungary about whether he would retain Raikkonen's services for next season. His reply? "It's interesting, because when I am answering this type of question you [the media] are telling me: "you are always giving us the same answer", without thinking that you are asking the same question!
"I said last time our goal now is to focus on the car. We have time to talk about drivers. During the summer break, you normally have a break so you are not deciding, working or thinking; you are swimming, climbing, going mountain biking, or whatever it is - otherwise it is not a break, it is work."
