kimi has the coolest head in title fights unlucky in 2003 and 05 due to car breaking down! 2007 he was like a cool snake while lewis and fernando were making silly errors in the final 2 rounds he can do it if they keep upgrade coming in and working !

if lotus have nailed this latest version of f duct and they all seem excited enough for that to be so then that will put kimi on the first 2 rows in quali if kimi is first 2 rows in any remaining race i belive considering the only reason he hasnt won 3 races so far is lack of quali position he has a fantastic chance to take multiple wins look at previous race pace and positions made in races the slight extra striaght line speed will help kimis clean overtaking style because unlike lots of other drivers out there including the great alonso kimi wont throw hes car at an impossible gap and let the other guy decide if to have an accident or not spa is the acid test if kimi wins there 2012 wdc yep go kimi

I'm pretty sure Kimi can do it... Ok, a number of other factors will play their additional role but, basically, he can do it. My main concern, as one of Kimi's most loyal supporters, is that I'm even more sure that Lotus Team show a discreet (or so) support to Roman and only when point difference between them opened a serious gap for Kimi the treatment equalized... I put myself totally against a possibility of Kimi's return to Ferrari (brrrr!) but I also emphasize to this "political" problem inside the Lotus Team and which is derived from his owner and his other interests(I think so)...

The second have should be sweet. for me the long shots are
Grosjean and Buttons..Alonzo has the upper hand but only if
he has some help from Massa..
Vettel and Hamilton will have some good battles with Kimi.
Kimi will deliver with a couple wins. The battle will close, but
the title will go to McLaren. Ferrari's Alonzo will have just to many
battles to fight and I don't think the Ferrari is quick
enough to take the WDC.

Fingers crossed..

its not kimi its the carrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr the bad boy e20 kimi just about beat alonso and that fast driver in 2007 if alonso had not had the best debutant in f1 as his partner then alonso would of destroyed kimi in 2007 and if that fast young driver guy at age 23 had not had to contend with a guy who beat up schumacher while becoming a two time world champion the he would have done to kimi what he did to alonso but on a bigger scale, kimi just in the right place at the right time.
