F1 » Raikkonen admits ‘seconds and thirds’ not enough

Raikonnen had 5 poles in comparison to Montoya's 2 in 2005, although we should bear in mind that Montoya missed a few races and participated in some weekends at far from 100%. 2006 Raikonnen got 3 poles whilst his teammate Fisichella got 0, which is respectable although we all know Fisichella was never a top tier driver. In 2007, the championship winning year, Massa Got 6 poles compared to Raikonnen's 3. In 2008 Massa got 6 poles compared to Raikonnen's 2. Obviously f1 is about what happens on a Sunday not a Saturday and that is why Raikonnen won the title in 2007 and is 2nd in the championship this year, he ups his game on a Sunday. But bearing in mind that at Raikonnen's best he was out-qualified by Massa and right now Grosjean seems to not only have the measure of Raikonnen on a Saturday but Sunday as well in terms of raw speed it is very hard to see him getting anywhere near Vettel if he goes to Red Bull.

F1 » Raikkonen admits ‘seconds and thirds’ not enough

Runnah, what faster car are you talking about? The fastest driver at nurb in the race was Grosjean, and with a better strategy it should have been a Lotus 1-2. Grosjean was also fast at the beginning of this race although he couldn't find a way past Vettel. Grosjean has proven the Lotus is a capable car in qualifying (3rd on the grid) and in the past 2 races has been faster than Vettel as well as Kimi. There is nothing wrong with the Lotus right now, Kimi needs to pull his finger out in qualifying but that is unlikely to happen seeing that raw speed has never been something you associate with Kimi, he is about consistency. I really hope that Raikonnen goes to Red Bull next season. Right now it is clear that the car with the best race pace is Lotus, and it would be an eye opener for many people when Raikonnen performs worse than he has at Lotus for Red Bull-although no doubt people will bring up the same excuses they do with Webber-No.2 driver so his car isnt as good, sabotage, etc
