Kimi was so funny over the radio. I replayed bit a few times just for the laugh. I hope he stays in F1 for a little while. He's so dry and miserable you have to laugh

I watched the race with a friend who works in TV marketing and she was squirming when listening to Kimi - his dour, unsensationalist approach is just the sort of thing that sends folk (real folk, not us F1 trolls) reaching for the remote and changing channels, costing the host broadcaster advertising revenue. Apparently.

It's not that he's miserable at all! He just doesn't feel the need to say 100 words when 2 straight ones will suffice. I personally think his radio comments were awesome! More of the same Kimi...!

You can tell Kimi never intends to be rude or malicious with statements like this, and I think his "dull" personality helps convey this. He may be a little more direct than most, but even his most disagreeable comments at least make sense. I think we make such a big deal out of it because he's one of the few in F1 not living on bullsh1t mountain.

Frankly, I was absolutely disgusted by Raikonnen's petulant and ungrateful attitude towards his engineers who were providing him vital information on keeping his tyres warm. That and the s-bomb he dropped on the podium should see him banned for a couple of races IMHO.
