F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


richard: i will disagree with ty and sunny on this one. kimi has suffered some bad luck this year, some of his own making, but that does not mean that he has lost the plot. when running properly he has shown himself to be almost as quick as seb. it was pretty obvious that kimi would be kept on for 2016 and then he would fully retire at the end of the season. by which time some of the new youngsters should have proved if they were consistently good. as regards matt2 comment...pullrod suspension has its benefits, and the car is certainly not suffering for using it. so why change?
Richard, Results is what counts, a driver with bad luck is no good for a team. As regards pull rod suspension, for FERRARI to have used it and retained it, it means FERRARI believes it has more benefits than a push rod type.

F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


Although as was the case with Tiapan I too was surprised that FERRARI retained Kimi, their decision only means that they believed they had no better Alternative for Kimi for the time being (next year), regardless of what others may think, in short FERRARI must have believed that Bottas, Riccardo, hulkenberg and Verstappen all of whom all were being pushed at their door by the usual F1 media were not potential alternatives for next year. He who pays the piper is what counts.

F1 » FIA sets out driver aid restriction plan for F1 2016


George Zaidan: No mention of coded messages, so I guess it's ok. You just know there will be coded messages, also watch for weird driver gestures followed by 'no pit stop this lap maybe in 3 more'. 3 meaning... And so on.
George, Re coded messages, as regards the race start were it concerns clutch bite point and throttle/torque map selection and input by the driver into the race start engine map, any messages coded or not will be of no use because the new directive says "before the car leaves the garage for starting grid, clutch bite point finder activation by the driver has to be inhibited by disabling any driver buttons or switch associated with that function by BBITEPOINTFINDERTOZERO". as I was saying the other week, this is the first step to do away with bite point finder and the use iof two paddles system next year.

F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


Sasha Alexandrovich: afaik Ricciardo still has to sign for 2016, so he was available for a move to Ferrari.
If it is true that the Colgate kid was free to move in 2016 and as claimed was being considered by FERRARI, it means that FERRARI wouldn't have incurred buy-out expenses, which in turn means that FERRARI did not consider him a worthy replacement for Kimi even at most probably a friction of the cost to keep Kimi.

F1 » Rosberg: It’s all still to play for...


ilione90:
richard: ilione. ty is spot on with his comments. seeing as it was only 8 years ago that heiki was told to let lulu through, you must not have been following f1 for very long. oh, and by the way, nico has had to accede on at least 3 occasions, as well as not being allowed to pass lulu when he was faster.
direct me to source please , and I don't mean Taipan says. Not that I doubt what Taipan is saying but he could be mistaken.
Taipan is as he usually is when quoting formula 1 history, spot-on.

F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


George Zaidan:
Omega:
George Zaidan: Congratulations Kimi!Remember when I kept saying Ferrari will keep Kimi, man I feel vindicated. Good on you Vettel for sticking up for your friend.
What George really meant was - good on you Vettel for sticking up for the guy who can't beat you. Or - good on you Vettel for making sure Ricciardo doesn't come into the team and embarress you again.
Totally wrong Omega, I would put 41 wins against 3 wins, 4 WDC against Zero, any day of the week. Where is your hero now, gonna blame his car? I believe that fanboyism is something that is found in everybody’s blood, no matter the PPM rating, its main problem is it can start blinding, firstly “one eye”, which will lead to one to being unable to reason objectively, such as how and why did the Colgate kid obtained those three wins last year:?.
