True champions learn to adapt to new cars or new spec cars but there are two champions who seem to be struggling to adapt this season and Kimi is one of them, and I have to agree with Alonso Kimi needs to contribute a lot more, earn while you learn that's how to be regarded as a top driver like the driver who left Mclaren and went to Mercedes and had to adapt to a breaking system he was not use to but contributed enough so that he and Nico put Mercedes above Ferrari at the end of the 2013 season. LDM will not tolerate substandard efforts.

Hope that Raikkonen doesn't end up like Jacques Villeneuve from WDC to laughing stock. When your teammate publicly embarrasses you the way Alonso just did with that unsubtle dig, even the Iceman would (should) get angry.

The slide down the constructors table maybe just what Alonso needs to activate the release clause in his contract. rumours doing the rounds that he has already contacted Mercedes and Ross brawn to return to Ferrari as an outside consultant

I like Kimi. Always have. Its hard to watch him struggle so much. The car looks out of shape on exits all the time. Mid corner too. It looks like as soon as he touches the gas the rear end steps out. Maybe its an engine issue more than aero issue. Smooth power delivery is a must when u have 800+ hp in a car that weighs less than 1500lbs..

Kimi only after his retirement package unfortunately. Hes done it before. Alonso, whom Im not a big fan of, is certainly the best driver out there. Stick him in a Merc and he would disappear. Thats a fact.

In FP1 in Germany Kimi's fuel pump went bad & took away his practice time. In FP2 Kimi was 4th & FA 12th. In FP3 Kimi's water pump went bad & took away his practice time. FA's car did not have anything wrong with it, again. In Canada Kimi's engine settings were wrong the whole weekend so he was spinning out. Not FA's, his ran just fine.
