Pole for Raikkonen

Silverstone, July 10 (Reuters): Kimi Raikkonen will start Sunday’s British Grand Prix from pole position for McLaren. The Finn’s third career pole was his and the Mercedes-powered team’s first since the US Grand Prix in Indianapolis last September.

Raikkonen’s time of 1:18.233 was 0.072 quicker than Ferrari’s Brazilian Rubens Barrichello, last year’s winner from pole position who will line up alongside him on the front row.

Briton Jenson Button was third quickest for BAR and starts on the second row alongside Ferrari’s six times world champion Michael Schumacher, who will be chasing his 10th win in 11 races this weekend. Italian Jarno Trulli, in a Renault, was on the third row.

Mika comeback plans

Former champion Mika Hakkinen is considering making a comeback, McLaren boss Ron Dennis said on Saturday. Hakkinen retired at the end of 2001 and won two world titles with McLaren.
