Even as a fan of Macca anyone can see the ones taking the points from Jenson and Lewis is the crew....

As for the Kimi thing i honestly didn't think he'd consider going back although they did give him a year off and paid him 20 million for the pleasure so maybe that wasn't such a bad thing :)

Berty,

I'm not only talking about this year, and it's also hard for a team to focus on both drivers at the same time. There comes a point where it's just easier to use one car in practice to test components while another car focuses on race strategy during practice. And since usually the cars have different setups, the team can also design parts specifically geared towards a driver's driving style.

The race is only half of the story. Someone as smart as you should have known that.

Didn't Ferrari pay him off to offload him? I don't see them hiring him again. Just not going to happen unless there is a new man at helm of Ferrari. They have Alonso and are probably looking for a good apprentice to him. Much like they had with Massa under Schumi. Perez is probably the leading candidate.

Not a chance in hades that kimi goes back to Ferrari. He was told in no uncertain terms to get lost. He may say there were no hard feeling but Ferrari made it clear that it was better to keep Massa.

Raikkonen always had tremendous bargaining power. That's what comes of being a great driver. That's why Ferrari did not want to set him free to compete against them after they saw the chance to get another great driver in whom they had greater faith, justifiably or not. I guess Alonso was more their style. Consequently, $15M into Kimi's pocket unless he got a F1 ride with someone else. Fat chance in a down economy for anyone to beat that offer. Good move for Ferrari,and not so bad for Kimi the free and independent sportsman. Now Raikkonen is showing why Ferrari was smart to pay. Best drivers usually wind up in best cars....hmmm.... where's it going to be. The Lotus/Renault is very good now.

Well some people can talk rubish on here, including you rob01. Although I tend to agree with one of your comnments on here, for once...to think that the post is based on speculation. The Dark Knight returns to his prancing horse, with his 'ice pick' huh?
