For sure F1 is more boring without KK. If any of these rumors are true about MW leaving and Kimi taking his spot, that could really cause a big shake up. I think KK would do great at Lotus. Hell maybe Lotus will drop RG (I like RG, decent points, but too many crashes) and pick up KK. Hell KK could even replace Massa if Ferrari do resign him for another year.

Either way, I hope KK comes back in 2014.

funny! earlier in the year, koba actually said that if he did not get a drive this year, he would give all the money to charity! seems he must he held on to it so far.
but I think that his previous "promise" would be a far fairer response, and I doubt that any of those who contributed would begrudge the money going to charity

Richard - I don't recall him saying that (not saying he didn't), but I would have thought it'd probably be the better thing to do. I'm guessing anyone who donated to his F1 fund probably isn't so hard up that they need the money back. Considering the events of not too long ago, and the country generally being located in a natural disaster zone, I'm sure there's something worthy it could go towards in Japan alone.

He still hasn't given up hope on getting another seat so i dont think giving the money back is a good idea untill he is sure he can't get back on the grid.
He is Japans best ever F1 Driver, and he outclassed Perez last season he deserves a seat and a good one at that.
