I was anticipating his arrival to McLaren and hoped he would be a decent replacement for Lewis. After watching the last few races, and Monaco in particular, I have serious doubts that he has the intellect necessary to develop into a top driver. His move on Kimi was inexcusable considering the several other idiotic moves he made at that and other corners, and for which other drivers had to seriously adjust their lines to prevent a crash. No, I think he is another Massa. Fast but unlikely to ever win a championship. I doubt he will keep his ride as long as Massa, though.

Well after this GP all I can say is that he's brain is not working like it shuold. Kamikaze was at WW2 not in 2013 F1. It was just question when he was going to crash. It was nice move at first time but 2nd and 3rd times it was just kamikaze becouse he cuold not turn in to corner.

Need to hope he wont be as long as Massa has.

I was surprised last year, when Ferrari allowed the former "replacement for Massa" to escape to McLaren. Now it looks like a brilliant move by the Scuderia. Perez is a hazard to anyone near him, as his record clearly shows. Today it was simply a matter of who he would hit, and when.

It might have been a bone head move on Raikonen but I have to admit he is a racer who goes for the gap and as one Ayrton Senna said once if you don't go for the gap you're no longer a racer. Sure this time it bit him in the ass but he makes Grand Prix exciting to watch. Reminds me of Villenueve and his fighting spirit no matter a dog of a car he drives.

Most of the drivers here have had their aggressive moments, not long ago Vettel went for 1st against his teamate... it looks like in Monaco it all worked for Sutil he too was pretty aggressive but he wasn't in a personal dispute with the driver in front like it was Perez with Kimi, the lotus's pace wasn't holding up against the Mclaren's If Kimi wasn't able to keep up he should have left some space for the take over just like every one else gave him space when he came out of pits and went back to last position and in a short time got to 10th. Both drivers loss but its this type of competitive telenovela that keeps me coming back to F1. Cheers Perez you'll get there! and the crying baby's that can't take the pressure should move over as this is meant to be a competitive sport not a gentle cricket match.

@ Chris Smith, it looks like the poor countries aren't the ones you are talking about... Mexico, Brasil, China, India, etc... Look to have a much stronger economy and very little debt compared to the trillions of debt the European Union and the United States have. Every kid born in the USA is born with a debt deficit from the day he comes into the world. If you feel you have much, think about how much you owe. Rich isnt a matter of how much I have that I owe, it really is how much I own out right. Start saving pay your loans and then we are talking rich guy.
