Man, this guy has more than 10 years of link with Ferrari,since Sauber times. Lets be honest, even Rubens Barrichello easily outperform Felipe if you compare both drivers campaign on Ferrari.

MY OPINION: hes there because of his manager, nothing else.

tomas. get real! do you really think that ferrari would pay him a hefty whack, just because of his manager? when they were prepared to pay-off a lack lustre kimi, they kept flip. so obviously they have a far higher regard of his skills, than you do.
his problem last year, was like webbers. he couldnt adapt to the tyres. why do you think that ferrari have employed the bridgestone tyre guru?

Most drivers would not have had another year to get it together. He is still there because of his manager, Nicolas todt.

Jean todt was the team principal, so he hired his son's client (Felipe).

Now that Jean Todt has even more leverage, they don't really want to upset the old boss' son by firing his flagship client.

Besides they might need a favor down the road.

this shows he is finally back to normal after getting hit by that bolt: back to the usual #2 driver pre-season fantasies about being faster than a guy you almost never beat.

He is saying he can b faster not better like hami & button. Whats wrong guys?
Though he has not recovered from his injuries yet, (@Richard, i doubt tyre problem like Webber)
he had sometimes outqualified Ferdi and was ahead of Ferdi who couldn't pass his teammate for many laps in many races in 2011. It wasn't like Vettel and Webber.More like lulu & Button i guess.

angelina. i dont write flip,off. yes, he has been faster than ferdi on a number of occassions, then he has een told to cede position. sometimes, ferrari altered strategies to help ferdi and then changed flips strategies, which hindered him. and then for the last five races, flip was being used to test wings and other items for 2012. all this has been confirmed by ferrari. and as regards the tyres, this has been well documented.
but for some reason, there are a number of posters who attack flip. jealousy? dislike of ferrari? or whatever. dont forget, he has also been ahead of wonderboy, lulu on many races, until being rammed off the road!
as i said, ferrari still have faith in him, and that is good enough for me.
