Kept saying would learn, would improve.

However, only his silent teammate made progress throughout the season.....

Silent is gold it seems.

Word is cheap without action.

Such a douchebag.

He's only there because his manager is Boullier, the team is basically Renault and because he's got some serious $$$ backing.

I really dislike him, he's got a face like a smacked ****.

Keep your head down Romain, I heard from pundits that the race Kimi had won was a performance Kimi has (perhaps) equalled on several occasions (Bahrain, Spain, Hungary spring to mind) without the 'breaks' going his way, Kimi's consistancy though enabled him to replicate the performance, the breaks certainly didn't go Romains way in Valencia, where he was fast, aggresive and unlucky.

So he destroyed multiple drivers' races multiple times and nearly took Alonso's head off because he wanted his first win "at all costs"? Hope he cleans up his act in 2013, he is lucky to be back with Lotus.

his teammate crashed him with an incompatible power steering.

And i heard from mark slade kimi had to helped the team to test new parts which compromise his own setup period. Just like when Kimi test the failed passive DRS for 3 race weekends and for nth in the end.

Pure excuses from Romain, lucky for him, Kimi sahred his telemetry to his teammate.

He's really got to clean up his act next season. The guy is fast, no doubt...but there's more to racing than being fast. You've got to know how to drive in traffic and that's something he really struggles with. It's not just mistakes on starts, he needs to improve his spatial awareness of the area around his car and where other cars are, or will be during a pass. A lot of it is lack of experience, but if he keeps colliding with other drivers in 2013, I can't imagine most F1 teams would want him driving their cars.

Don't we often see a driver getting tangled up in silly accidents, The other year it was Hammy and Felipe... I wonder what odds you'd get at the bookies on Romain finishing the first 5 races...Worth a punt?

Well, Kimi started back in 2001, he fought for the title on several occasions and eventually won one. I'd be cautious when directly comparing with basically a rookie, OK, a semi rookie if you want.

Kimi also had a great season, really a remarkable one all things considered and especially in terms of consistency. I don't really expect Romain to replicate this but hopefully he'll make the most of his undeniable speed and that he can score some impressive results.

I kinda expect him to do more mistakes than Kimi, let's just hope that it will be rather about 3 than 9...Eve if once again he wasn't necessarily the sole culprit in the 2012 incidents. The midfield was also quite agitated for many others...
