Never understood all the hype the press makes about this whinner. He says the car has this or that problem, then he claims he cannot adapt his style to the car! It is laughable. Try to imagine D.Hill, Fangio, JS, Senna, Mansell, Prost, Hakkinen, Piquet Sr, J.Brabham, GHill or even Lauda making that same statement! Unthinkable! KR IS the Problem. Making $45M/year in 09, wasn't about time this bedwetter would drive his machinna like a man and stop blaming the car? I am sure the late Enzo would have kicked this KR primadonna in the @$$ last year.

Why on earth did you include D Hill in that list?

You guys are always fast to slag somebody off. I also agree with Alan D. But just think, why did Michael pull out of driving the car ???? Is it maybe that it is just such a dog now that it can't be driven fast?? I do not say that Kimi can carry a car but Fisi is no slouch, and is very good in development and he has not even shown middle grid. Engage Brain before engageing MOUTH !!

Whinning ? Since when ? So you expect him to say "oh its my mistake, I should be on pole." Hello, FISI is LAST! Not a car problem ? Go figur...bunch of idiots...

Neither Kimi nor Felipe have had a pole this year when last year they had a combined 8 and the year before a combined 9. Everyone knows Kimi is one of the fastest on the track if not the fastest (when he actually is with it). Like ethan said, Fisi has been a bottom-feeder in the Ferrari. The car is just plain bad.

BoSox says Kimi is one of the fastest out there if not the fastest, I too think so as I prefer to lean on more expert opinion then these blinded posters, some time ago while Ross Brawn already had JB and RB as his drivers he said that Kimi is blindingly fast, by far the fastest out there but Alonso is the best driver.

Of course it is a problem with the car that Ferrari are a bit rubbish at the moment. Anyone with half a brain can understand that when Ferrari stopped development on the car 3 months ago and everyone else is still updating theirs that it meant that the Ferrari would always be very slow come the end of the season.
Quite frankly, it is a miracle that they are where they are in the constructors championship, something that can be attributed to good strategy and Kimi Raikkonen's fantastic driving this season.
