yeah, lets him talk at track as arai say, i understand hes try yo mean, is not about dont do promo or something like that, is about all that speculative atmosfere wich try to transform every thing in something much more than it is...is logical, i feel like him in general, i dont need to be racer to feel that, but there is much more in his world...i cheers for him one of the most speedster really, awesome incredible attitude-skills kudos, he have it!

Excellent actor?
You shud be joking man. He can't even smile even after winning a race. Barely a smile after winning WDC. No expressions.

To be a good actor, you should be more expressive than normal people like Vettel.

Vettel, Hamilton, Button are million times better actors than this plain faced still photograph.

Judging by the sponsors that have come to Lotus since Kimi signed, it would seem there is even corporate support for his no BS approach.
If he performs well, he will sign with whoever he wants next year, and he may just stay with Lotus.
Just watch.

Icecreamman, what are you talking about? Why on earth are you a fan of F1 if the racing isn't what you're interested in.

Frankly, I do not think Kimi has a poor attitude like some posters keep repeating. His Lotus engineers have said many times that he has a good work ethic, he knows he has to do setup and development work to have a winning car to play with, he just leaves it at that. He'll do his laps, report what he feels when he's driving and then let the engineers crunch the numbers. Very few F1 drivers actually have much engineering knowledge anyway - their specialty is racing just the same as the engineers' specialty is, er, engineering.

He loves the racing, that's all. How does that not make him motivated enough as a racer?

Angelina,
One would think all we need to do is watch him drive and enjoy his special talent..Everything b4 and anything after is just
window dressing.
The game is about winning. That is the true meaning of the sport. Everything before and after the checkered flag is for the most part, just 'theater', much is spurious noise and other Bull..
Kimi is different 'Dog' like him or not. He has that special
talent..His dismissal by Ferrari is their loss, Big time..

The Badman, Jose
