Kimi is an outstanding driver and his "Just let me drive and don't bother me with political and sponsor BS" is refreshing. Re his lifestyle: His life is his own, and he should be allowed to live it as he chooses.

I've always been a huge fan of his and I always knew he was one of the best drivers out there but even this season he has surprised me. People think Alonso is bet driver out there, I'm not going to disagree with that but I think Raikkonen is just as good as he is.

He is an EXCEPTIONAL driver. I know I have been banging on about it for weeks but he is the KING of Spa with 4 wins from his last 5 visits there, should have been 5 out of 5 and with the new double DRS expected there he must be favourite.

1) MSC won 6 times at Spa,should have been 8 but was disqualified in 1994 and DC stayed on the racing line in rain in 1998.
So by that logic, MSC is the master of Spa.

2) Will everyone still be calling Kimi for the victory if as, we all know, it rains at Spa. A very likely scenario?
The Mclaren and Lotus have both had serious issues with wet tyre performance.

Their is a lot over over reaction to Raikkonen's return here, he was'nt world champion for nothing and he has had a very good and improving car to drive
so we could have expected him to be there or thereabouts. He has seemed a bit race rusty but is improving all the time. It puts into perspective the performances of MS and in particular Jenson Button who has driven as if he has been away for ten years. Raikkonen is a good bet for a win or two and might even give Alonso a fright at seaspons end.

he ain't world champion for nothing? He is world champion because Alonso and Hamilton took so much points of each other he was just in the right place at the right time and he is only starting to look good now because the lotus is starting to perform

herowassenna -- How many of the Schumi wins were more down to having a huge car advantage? Kimi's last Spa win was in a really poor Ferrari. For me Kimi is the king of Spa, but even with the "double drs" i'm not sure the Lotus will be good around Spa, with it being a much cooler track.
