    And even then he was given the boot at the end of season ROFL

    Back on topic, did anyone have the misfortune to hear any of the "interviews" with Kimi after the announcement? Is it an act or is he really incapable of making a sentence longer than three or four words?

    My F1 photographer acquaintance assures me it's an act - he's a right laugh off camera apparently, just hates interacting with the media. Which is a bit odd, and rather aloof. It's a bit of a mystery as to why he has so many fans worldwide.

    The same went for Hakinnen according to a contact that I had in F1 at that time.

    I read the other day Kimi was supposedly quoted something " Nice to pi$$ off his detractors!"

    Someone should pay the Finnish fans to go to more circuits.

    Raikkonen: F1 rule enforcement "a joke", needs changing

    One of the reasons that I like Kimi: At least HE has the guts to say what needs to be said.

    In my opinion Raikkonen was the driver of the day yesterday and was unlucky not to have the stewards tell Verstappen to move over. Just why Ferrari could have hit on a strategy that could actually work will have to be examined by the stewards but it was well executed.

    After today's Rosberg news I've got a little scene in my head where Kimi is alone in his house looking first at a picture of Nico, then Jenson, then Felipe and then suddenly getting up and starting singing and dancing to "I'm still standing" by Elton John.

    I think 'true survivor' should be his new nickname.

    I suspect it will be very much a one way conversation.

    I was surprised by how long Raikkonen has had to wait since his last pole - if he gets one he breaks the record wait. These are the last wins and poles for current F1 drivers: Ava.png

    Alonso hasn't won a race in 4 years! 4 and a half since poll! I kinda think when they come to write the history of his career anything post 2013 will just be like a brief paragraph.

    Why does Kimi have any fans? He isn't brilliant on track and his interviews are lifeless

    Maybe because he was brilliant and when he does speak he can come out with some great putdowns?
