F1 » Raikkonen: That’s luck, that’s racing

HairyLuthier: I don't understand why they brought him in. When Raikkonen's MGU-H failed he was losing 4 tenths a lap. If he had stayed out he would have still got a points finish.
Mmmmmaybe.... W/o the kinetic harvesting to help slow the car, the (tiny) rear conventional brakes tend to self destruct quite rapidly. The driver can 'manage' them to a degree, but only at the cost of going even slower. And even then, the brakes will eventually fail completely.

F1 » Raikkonen brushes off strategic error as pressure mounts

107SS2009: Rob, today it was FERRARI who screwed-up Kimi, Kimi had no part in it.
Until you can produce a radio clip with Ferrari ordering him to pit immediately, I'm going to assume it was Kimi's option (any sane team will leave this critical decision to the driver), and that he screwed up. Badly. A driver makes his own luck in F1. As one 'unlucky' event piles up on top of another, it becomes harder and harder to accept them as random chance. FWIW, I've reached the point where I believe that Kimi is not properly 'plugged in.' I also get the impression he's still resisting any input of timely information from the pit. 'Don't bother me.' is cute when you win, but not after you make a long series of mistakes. And then there is his indifferent attitude and demeanor that are oddly refreshing, but don't help his reputation as a somewhat lazy driver. Sorry, this fan has thrown in the towel. :( If Ferrari can sign either of the TR guys for next year,

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez left me with no chance

Polyccio: This guy makes the late, great, Marco Simoncelli look like a saint. Marco was a bit lairy but had way more class than Princess Marquez does.
Simo had a warmer, much more genuine personality. (He was just as much a menace on-track as Maim Marquez.) Speaking of Marco... After watching most of the Assesn sessions, and seeing an out-of-control MM nearly collide with a number of riders, I'm starting to feel anxiety about someone getting hurt soon. As Marco showed, you can only push your luck so many times before something very bad happens. MM needs to calms the f**k down...

F1 » Raikkonen: Miscommunication to blame for Q1 exit

There is a session countdown timer available on the wheel. Maybe Kimi should have put down the ice cream cone long enough to read the display and verify that he had enough time for another lap. Seriously, isn't that what all the drivers do? It's part of the qualifying effort, making sure you don't fall outside of the planned time window. If Alonso or another car was delaying him and endangering his last lap run, Kimi should have already been aware of the fact.
