Quite good at what he does indeed...

Maybe if Vettel secretly doesn't want him to be his teammate he should encourage some journalists to keep asking Kimi where he's going to drive next year...Maybe after being asked the same question tenthousand times Kimi decides he's had enough of F1 once more.

Mike also forgot to mention that Kimi wasn't particularly motivated anymore, after he'd won the WDC with Ferrari. A fully motivated Kimi is a match for ANY other driver in the paddock. FACT.

kimi scored all 38 Ferrari points in the nine races after Massa's accident, done at a time when the team stopped developing the car. they scored 32 points during the first nine races, although KR 'only' scored 10 of those 32 points he was the first points scorer for them, he got their first podium and only win. i think he would make any team stronger

I liked the way he hunted Vettel down yesterday. One more lap and he would have had him! Just like Webber would have had Rosberg last weekend. I know it's woulda coulda shoulda, but it was still fun to watch.

Not sure why KR would want to move to Redbull anyway. His own car is pretty good and its not that easy to say how fast Vettel is - Webber is obviously number 2 driver but has never really performed in the car that SV is mostly dominant in. I suspect Vettel is indeed very quick. Time will tell.

Red Bull will want the best drivers in the best cars and that choice has to be kimi . Why would kimi shift Money will be a lot greater at RB as well Mark gets 9 mill a yearand kimi will be very quick in the RB car

Ferrari needs 2 new drivers. Since Kimi has experience with how Ferrari operates he could go back and take up his place as 1st driver there & they would not have to break in 2 new drivers at the same time. I doubt that Ferrari wants to run against Vettel & Kimi at RBR. Alonso went to them with Santander money and bamboozled them.
