Yes, much to easy on both Massa and Kimi. They should both be let go. They have driven to new lows for Ferrari. With all that has happened this year with them at the helm it is shocking that they would keep either. They should have gotten FA and SV and sent the two clowns to the house.

To be fair, just about every driver on the grid has shown some pretty poor performances this year.

Raikkonen's problems basically come down to qualifying. If it weren't for those problems he would be running away with the championship, he is almost always the fastest in the races.

He may have the most fastest laps, but that doesn't mean he's fastest over the whole race: it seems to me he only wakes up towards the end of the race, when he sees the opportunity for an extra point. That's when his "hot lap" goes in...

Steve, I do agree with your entire grid comment. But when you drive the red car there should not be as many problems. You have the best car and team and resources available. Ferrari should never allow this kind of effort from their drivers. They can get anyone they want and are sticking with Kimi and Massa again. I just don't see the logic. I like Kimi but his effort this year is what I would expect from a Force or Honda driver. The only reason they still have hope this year is because of Lewis.

Look who's talking. It's kind of ironic because Kimi's defense of the WDC is as poor as Scheckter's. Having said that I believe Kimi will be in the hunt next year with his efficient style of driving, smaller wings (no ugly looking appendages), and slicks. I reckon he'll be untouchable. People to suffer sudden drop of form next year will be: Alonso, lulu, Kubica. All of them because of very aggressive turn in. Next year will be all about managing your tires.

I think the ferrari team are to be blamed for quite a few disasters this season but i very much doubt that either driver is havin it easy. LDM called for a ferrari one two for the rest of the season and there have porobably been sum serious words had behind the scenes. and also the sport has moved on a lot since 79, nowadays drivers are more likely to be at the top of their game seen as they arent drunk or smokin now. amway ferrari dont need to be strict with their drivers now that they make the rules.

people say kimi is the fastest, not! he may have set the most fastest laps over the season but most of them have been after the race has done about two thirds then he finally wakes up and starts driving in my opinion he didnt deserve the WDC anyway as he was gifted it by silly errors from lewis and mclaren and he hasn't defended it very well either and his attitude leaves a bit to be desired ferrari would do better to ditch him
