I'm very confident Kimi can and will win the title this year
- Alonso can't count on luck every time and though he has done a great job he will suffer bad weekends. If he doesn't well that will be unusual for F1.
- Vettel has the worst record this year for reliability. Don't see this changing.

- Kimi's win will come, as will more podiums

course I could be totally wrong, but I doubt it!

Let's see how many Kimi fanboys disagree with this..

Grosjean has ouqualified Kimi this year

Now, let's wait for the disagrees!!!

Gotta love these Kimi fanboys, priceless!

It was interesting speaking to Will Buxton (GP2 & GP3 commentator) on Twitter last night and he believes that Lotus will win in Suzuka & that the title will come down to Alonso & Kimi, I hope he knows what is coming to the final few rounds from Lotus. Alonso & Kimi have been the best drivers this season in my view & I would love to see Kimi win the championship, imagine that for a comeback!

If you look at Kimi's history he has always given more than the car is worth apart from 2008. That said however 2008 he finished 3rd and everyone is allowed a bad year. Sadly I think 2004, 2006 and 2009 being in bad cars that were never going to win the WDC put a downer on his career and really he should have been 3 times WDC now as he was by far the best in 2003 and 2005 but let down by car failures.

@DPironi, if only that qualifying will give you the championship. :)

Learn the kimi attitude, it's the final sunday results that counts, just ignores the rest.

Raikkonen has been the surprise of the season in some respects, everyone knew he was fast, but a 2 year break doesn't seem to have dulled his racing instincts at all, when those supposedly in the know were predicting it would have.
Its amazing how he's demonstrated not only his high level of motivation in fighting for the next position but also his racecraft and skill at keeping out of trouble, he's been Mr Consitency and its bringing its rewards, Fantastic to see him back in this kind of form, hope he keeps it up, and i hope he gets a win, that'll shake things up a bit.

@Puddleman

the facts: Kimi lies 3rd on wdc table with a much inferior car than mclaren, redbull and ferrari

haters need to get a grip

he achieved that in a car that wasnt built around him unlike alonso, lewis and vettel. he also been driving a handicap steering that doesnt particularly suited him.

and people claim kimi cant drove around car problem which i claim as bullsh*t!!
