F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Everything seems to be against us’


Pt. 2. Kimi asked who made the call and has lost a practice every race since.A gearbox in Monaco cost him his Friday afternoon practice, a bad power unit in Montreal cost him his first practice. If you can’t practice you can’t get your set-up right. One wonders why FA doesn’t have any glitches taking away his practices? Is it fixed so that Kimi cannot race FA? PeopIe were looking forward to seeing a Kimi and FA team battle & are disappointed that there isn’t one.Yes, there is.You just can’t see it because the machinations are all being done below what we can obviously see.I believe that for all Kimi has had thrown at him this year he is doing GREAT!:)

F1 » Newey: Leaving Red Bull like walking out on your wife


Ferrari made Adrian Newey a great offer. If I were Newey, I would have taken a long hard look at Ferrari’s offer. It certainly looks too good to be refused. Then I would see that Ferrari is not letting Kimi race to win, only to stay behind FA. Adrian worked with Kimi at McLaren and he knows how good Kimi is. Then Adrian would understand that if FA did not win the WDC with Adrian’s aero design, that Ferrari would throw him under the bus rather than let Kimi win and show how good his design is. Luca would go on saying that Ferrari has to build a car good enough for FA. Adrian is too smart to throw away his career in that quagmire. Ferrari’s first concern is not winning.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Everything seems to be against us’


Kimi loses practice time on weekends... & his practice day in Barcelona, a gearbox I believe it was.In Bahrain Kimi & FA raced neck & neck all race and finished 9& 10.FA then tested Kimi’s car in Bahrain, which was suppose to have been Kimi’s practice days, & then Kimi’s car would not run during the first China practice. It would certainly take the wind out of your sails to not have time to work on your set-up.Kimi got all three practices in Barcelona & qualified in front of FA. It might have helped his confidence in the pit wall to be called in first when he was ahead in the race & if strategy is changed mid-race, that Kimi will be consulted on what he wants to do, also.

F1 » What we learned at the Chinese Grand Prix


Maybe FA wanted Briatore to replace Domenicali. I use to be a big Alonso fan. Then there was the Piquet Jr. disaster. I believe that Alonso should have been banned from F1 along with Briatore & Piquet Jr. Jr. was just a hapless victim of the other 2, & it cost him the rest of his F1 career. That isn't fair or right. In Bahrain, both Kimi & FA ran together & finished 9 & 10. Kimi was looking forward to his 2 days of testing in Bahrain. Then I read that FA is in Kimi's car for both days, until it would not run anymore. Then we get to China & the car won't run in the 1st practice. Why? What was FA doing testing for 2 days in Kimi's car. What possible use could all of that be? Have you ever heard of another team doing anything like it, or Ferrari ever doing it before? Kimi had felt good about how well he had run in Bahrain & all of a sudden in China, nothing worked right. I am asking why?
