Haha, he doesnt even do track walk on thursday......

Since his 2001 F1 debut, he managed to learn Imola in 3 laps while Jenson struggle badly despite having more experience compare to a guy who only competed in 23 feeder races.

He even slept in garage in every race 30 minutes before the gp start...a habit he practised since sauber days.

Crazy guy...call him lazy, unmotivated bla bla bla.......he deserved to be lazy if he can manage it without effort. This guy race for fun, not for glory.

Well, kimi is very sensitive to every single details of the cars according to his all the engineers who worked for him. Read from autosport who claimed kimi drove and rely on his reflex who acquired a certain amount of feedback from the car with extremely sensitive steering wheel. Fine example would be his superb reflex in avoiding all the potential crashes and being brilliant in milimeter car length wheel to wheel racing all season long.

Obviously the simulator cant replicate everything from real track experience, being as sensitive as kimi could be, it only magnify the flaws of such tools.
