F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


Much as I like Kimi I'm surprised, I thought his time was up, he simply hasn't delivered for Ferrari second time round. Edit: I do understand the appeal of Kimi, unlike Lulu who only appeals to the utterly deranged but the Kimi fanboys are almost as one eyed as Lulu's, 19 races with Alonso last year and he was beaten in 16 of them, 10 races with Vettel this year and he's been beaten in 8 of them yet you disagree that he hasn't delivered. How very strange.

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


ilione90: How do you think he rates along side Button and Alonso.
Impossible to say how well Alonso and Button are driving this year due to the pup they have been given. If Nico had been Alonso's team mate at Ferrari in recent years I think he would have been utterly dominated just like Felipe and Kimi. If he had been Button's team mate at McLaren in previous seasons it would have been pretty close but Button is capable of delivering some stunning drives something that Nico rarely does.

F1 » VIDEO: Lewis Hamilton previews the Belgian GP


ilione90: I love Spa it is a real challenging track, and if I was to pick three drivers to do this track justice it would be Clark, Stewart and Hamilton, In what order?
Dear God RGT Jackie never even won at Spa and Lulu has managed 1 win in 8 attempts despite being in cars that were capable of challenging for the championship most of the time so why do you pick those 2 to "do the track justice" ? Try Clark with 4 wins in a row and nobody could get near him, or Senna with 5 wins or Schumacher with 6 wins or even Kimi with 4 wins, all far better at doing the great track justice than Jackie or Lulu.

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


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.
It was Germany 2008 I believe Richard, Lulu has even spoken about it in an interview some time later, saying "I've never benefited from team orders, except for one time in 2008" I guess Trollboy has deleted that episode from his memory.

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


ilione90: But did not Alonso have No1 status when he was Massa's teammate. I do respect drivers who race and beat their teammate on equal terms like erm, that guy .
Hmm I recall Heikki being told to pull over to let that guy pass and Button and Rosberg being told not to pass that guy even though they were clearly quicker, did you conveniently forget that?

F1 » Ferrari confirms Kimi Raikkonen for 2016


Richard I'm certainly not saying that Kimi is suddenly a bad driver and he has at times ran close to Seb this year and has had more than his share of bad luck but to be beaten by Alonso in 16 of 19 races last year and 8 of 10 by Vettel this year he's just not matching them. I'm sure Ferrari could find someone who could do that at a fraction of the cost and possibly give a younger driver valuable experience for the future into the bargain. I'd love to see Kimi returning to his 2012 form but so far there is absolutely no sign of that happening.
