If Kimi does not live like an athlete you have to question whether it's worth it for drivers who do, lets face it they're not any faster or more consistent than him.

Taz, Yeah that's him, he was at Lancia during the 037, S4 and Stratos period, I think he had moved on before the Integrale domination.

".....he packs his belongings after the sessions and goes, so how much technical contribution can he make?"

Does this have anything to do with the Lotus team's lack of progress? Even if they were not budget-constrained, how can they develop a car without feedback?

wonder how kimi will react faced with driving a lemon next year, motivation for his first year after returning was helped with a good fast car and less so mid season on this year, so having to fight the rest of the grid as well as his team mate may dampen his spirit, excuse the punt !

He said that Ferrari should sign a young driver and build on his talent. I think that drivers are not the bigest problem at Ferrari. Alonso and Raikkonen started their careers together in 2001 and problably they will finish it at the same tine as well. But I don't see any problem for Ferrari to sign a certain Vettel or Hamilton after that. Everyone wishes to drive a Ferrari at least once in their career. Or they have the choice of a more experienced Hulkenberg or Bianchi when the time will come.
