I think he's making a mistake by ruling out racing any other classes. There is always something you can learn, improving your racecraft, through competition. He should try to race elsewhere in 2013 and try to make some waves, it can only help his case and improve him, as a racing driver.

His starting a charity appeal to ensure his continuance in F1, in a world were a child dies from malnutrition every 5 seconds, is one of the most shameful things I have ever witnessed!

Shame about Kamui, I loved some of his moves and he has speed. He should do what Grosjean did and go back to GP2 , get that GP2 mindset out of his head , which I believe was the reason for his being dropped (that incident in Korea was probably the tipping point).

Will miss Kamui, great driver and personality, and in the right car would definitely have been a contender for a championship. He is faster and a better racer than a lot of drivers on the grid, so it is disappointing to see him go.

F1 is supposed to B the pinnacle of motorsport. This means the best cars and drivers. What do we have?

Because Bernie Eccelstone controls the purse strings and takes such a bite out of cash flow coming in there is not enough funds to keep up with the top five teams who have additional funding from their own commercial companys...e.g., Ferrari sells cars and Red Bull sells an upper drink. Kobayashi does not have a drive because he is not a little rich kid (e.g., Sutil) or is not supported by a government (e.g., Maldenado)...he is a far better driver than many of those that have current a seat. We as fans R actually seeing a staged show of 20 teams competing when, in fact, there is only five competitive teams...the rest R just barriers that get in the way of these faster cars. We as fans should not
