Jacques Villeneuve - who?? you are a failed racing driver who got really lucky with that one championship! seriously ur comments are a joke and an insult to a brilliant driver who was unlucky not to win many more...if Kimi was lucky to be champion in 2007 would you call him unlucky not to be in 2003 and 2005 which he couldn't win only bcoz of so many mechanical failures with the McLaren car. He absolutely beat the s$$it out of schumi during those years in the McLaren.

kimi raikkonen and lucky should not be used in the same sentence! His mclaren broke down every couple of races and cost him at least one championship and in 2007 he had 2 race ending car failures in spain and germany whilst hamilton and alonso had none that year.

The logic is if your team mate is a two times world champion, the team will focus on him which is normal. He has won races and almost a championship or two. He is a great driver and right now he is driving strongly for Ferrari. I don't understand people who criticise him.
How do u explain Mercedes GP then? the team-mate is a 7 times world champion and beaten in almost every race

Kimi title also didnt involve the team telling massa to slow down and let him pass, he won it by going faster than massa when he was presented with a clear road

I agree with most people here. Kimi was so far ahead in all of those races, you could hear the collective gasps throughout the F1 world every time the car broke down. Not only was he unlucky in that MacLaren, he never ONCE bad-mouthed the team! Unlike somebody else we all know very well.

Also, some say he ONLY won the WDC with Ferrari because Massa allowed him to. hahaha what a naive statement to make! He PLACED HIMSELF in that position for Ferrari to make the call! He never gave up the fight, with the MacLaren in-fighting and Hammy and Alonso battling each other. So it was a no-brainer for Ferrari to make the call in that last race!

One other quick thing:

We are also Kubica fans in my household and we can't help thinking that if Robert hadn't had his accident and Renault had managed to get a re-vitalised Kimi in the car with him, they would be firing on all cylinders and definitely mixing it with the big boys at the sharp end!

Unlike the 'B-team' that is Heidfeld and Petrov, which seem to be going backwards in that fast car!

Just watched the 07 season, and Kimi won like 5 or 6 races, and was more often than not in podium positions. He was pushing Hamilton and Alonso. What did Massa do to deserve the title? He outbraked himself twice in the same corner trying to pass a rookie in his 3rd ever race, the second time losing 3 positions.

Yeah, a real champion. As soon as those pole positions disappeared, so did his wins.
