Like everything you do daily for many years you eventually get bored and look for something else.
He will be different this time. He would have realised how mundane life was without F1 and will be full of enthusiasm.

i dont see kubica coming back to that team. His contract is up so unless he drives for free why give him a chance. It's not the teams fault what happened to him so they dont owe him anything.

Definitely looking forward to seeing Kimi back in F1. It seems a lot of people are either expecting so much from straight away, questioning his motivation or think he won't match the pace of the front runners as its changed so much since he left. I personally think "so what?" At the start of his career in F1 the FIA was reluctant to give him the superlicence with little race experience and in his first race for Sauber in 01 he scored his first points and I don't think he lost motivation, he did the best he could with the Ferrari in 09, scoring a handful of podiums and a win in a car that was clearly not a front runner and was 3rd in the championship in 08. All that lack of motivation talk stemmed from having a bloomin' magnum of all things lol. All I can say is lets wait and see how he gets on but don't expect him to be slicing through the field from the word go but if people want to expect something from him then expect top 10 finishes then.

Now they've got a quick driver at last, they need a great development driver to back him up. Not Grosjean, Senna or any other rookie, but someone who knows how to set up and develop the car. Rubens could be a good fit. Instead they will go for a pay driver because Lotus or whatever they will be called, is all about money.

Great to see Kimi back ... awesome racer. Pity he has joined a free falling team that I just can't support.
Can't see Kimi and Boullier in the same pit somehow.
