Cape Town - Watching over his own motocross team at the weekend, Kimi Raikkonen had a typical answer when asked for an interview.

"No," the German newspaper Mitteldeutsche Zeitung quotes him as saying.

"Kimi is the best"

Raikkonen's rider Max Nagl, however, is happy to talk about the Ferrari driver, saying at the motocross event in Teutschenthal: "I am myself a big Formula 1 fan. And when a star like Kimi (Raikkonen) is your boss, it's the best that can happen to you."

Raikkonen, the 2007 world champion, might be famously reserved and uncooperative with the media, but Nagl says he knows how to run a team.

The Finn said: "With us, everything is much more organised than the other teams in the paddock.

"For example, the other teams try to save with travel expenses, but Kimi knows it is better to spend a bit more so we are rested for the race."

Nagl admitted, however, that he doesn't see a lot of Raikkonen.

"Kimi travels a lot so it's mainly over the phone," he said. "Of course I'm pleased that he's here now."
