Kimi is awesome.

Anyway, one thing NASCAR could do (for now) is provide him with a neat salary.

Incomprehensible for us Europeans, but the drivers in the Sprint (? The one that One drives in) series alledgedly all make mega moulah, even the ones who cruise around at the back apparently make millions.

Being a motorsport fan, I'll watch almost any type of motorsport event, even lawn mower racing. Just because it's not your cup of tea doesnt mean you have hate on it. Dont be a snob.

That said, I hope he'll continue the great finnish traditional past time, rallying.

Tom Que
ha ha you did a funny. Although I don't catch many Nascar races anytime I do see one, I always think it's a lot more exciting than F1 and that includes the ovals.
I think Raikkonen isn't too fussed about a seat in F1 next year because he can see as others that F1 has become pretty boring, instead of chasing the paycheck, it looks like he's looking for a type of motorsport that keeps him awake. He doesn't really need the cash.

Laugh all you want but NASCAR calls F1 "pinky" drivers. They drive around with their little pinky in the air hoping they don't have to actually race against someone.

PS If your British I wouldn't joke about teeth!

As Montoya found out, Kimi would get his a$$ kicked for a few years.

He'd find out in a hurry it's a lot harder than it looks. I'd rather see him in IndyCars though.
