F1 » Renault F1 has 'reignited the will to win', title is 2011 aim


Having risen phoenix-like from the ashes of its 'Singapore-gate' shame, so great has been Renault F1's progress this season that new owner Gérard Lopez believes a tilt at the title is not altogether out-of-the-question in 2011

mercedes and mclaren not agreeing to engine parity for renault up to this point is what is keeping mclaren in touch with red bull and mercedes ahead of renault, the top 4 may not lay down, but they are scared, even without raikkonen as kubicas team mate

This may be a slightly biased view (as a Raikkonen fan) But if Renault have regained the "will to win" & want to adopt a winning attitude then they must look at Raikkonen very seriously.They will not be pushing for titles with a driver of Petrov's level in the car.Having a driver of Raikkonen's level on board will only move the team forward. For Renault, having the strongest driver line up possible is a must & having Kimi onboard would not only increase the development rate of the car, and bring in consistently higher points scoring positions and less school boy errors. It would also help push Kubica on to achieve his full potential. Many WILL say that bringing Raikkonen in will rock the boat and detract the focus from Kubica, however i think the fact that Raikkonen is not a drive that lusts after the teams fully attention(ALONSO)& the fact that both Kimi & Robert are friends, get on well, as well as the fact that they are 2 of the most laid back characters around will help alot!

Didn't Ferrari let go of Kimi because he was not much of a development driver? Just show up and wanting to jump into a winning car. And he had that same rep at other teams. So maybe Kimi wouldn't be the perfect driver for them.

There are people who get paid to develop the car and people who get paid to drive the car. Don't you get it? What's the use of a good development driver if he hasn't got the raw speed?

They can thank Robert Kubica for getting thier enthusiam back into F1 the guy has carried the team this season he derserves the rider of the season award, if Renault are going to win a world title i hope this is the guy driving the car. He deserves to be a world champion
