If only he could get some more luck in qualifying or better performances in qualifying then he'll be right up there for the win, also if Lotus could get the strategy right.

I thought he would easily be on pole in Hockenheim after his Q1 lap on the medium tires it was much quicker than everyone else but I'm just waiting for Spa for that win, he's on the last 4 out of his last 5 visits there.

have to admit i was one of those saying he'd be no good.
If it wasnt for Alonso's disturbingly relentless performances id be saying Kimi was my driver of the year. He might not be giving us the excitement his fans expected, but he is driving with amazing consistency. He's making Groesan look an amateur.
Ive been really impressed by him, he's gone wheel to wheel a lot of times and not once lost a piece of bodywork.

His pass on Schumacher was really a work of art, one of the best. He used the sling shot effect, like spaceships use to accelerate away from the gravitational field of a planet, he accelerated in the turn and was able to control the car just when the straight began. Schumi's defense was perfect, but Kimi was able to invent a new way to pass. Best pass I have seen for years.

well, I've put a small wad on Kimi for the title: not such a long shot, but the odds are still good!
anyone who thinks Alonso is gonna walk it is in clouud cuckoo territory

@dimitris...

I agree, when Michael passed Diresta, Kimi's move behind Michael into that corner was lightening, it has to be one of the fastest moves I've seen and so clean, he didn't break at all into the left right corner, he excellerated out behind Michael. I actually think Kimi was thinking,I picked up Diresta now I can get Schumacher here too.
