I guess that's one way of putting it. I'd rather say he's still the loose cannon he's been the last couple of years. The only thing he'll be competitive in this season will be who'll crash his car the most, him or Sato.

I agree about seeing an F1 race live. It's amazing how much downforce the cars have, and how the seem to suck up the pavement underneath them as they fly by.

Also cool is being able to hear the different car engines and how each has a unique sound.

Last year the Hondas were the loudest, holy fuck loud, engines I've ever heard.

Positively impressed by Lewis Hamilton. A podium at his debut. Alonso's got a really talented teammate this year. Kimi did a good job, I wonder what Michael Schumacher thought when he saw(if he has seen the race at all) Kimi win for the first time in the Ferrari.

By the way I think that dot system Bridgestone introduced is totally useless and I hope that they come up with something more visible soon.. Not that I'm that interested in compounds but it would be interesting to be able to exactly follow the teams and compare their choices

Nah, that's not the point. It's whichever supermodel he's shagging at the moment!

Isn't that the whole point of F1?

How charismatic is Raikkonen?

Interviewer: How are you?
Kimi: Fine.
I: Congratulations!
K: Cheers.
I: How did the car feel?
K: Fine.
I: Did you feel any pressure, being with Ferrari?
K: Nuh.
I: You had a moment, care to explain?
K: Got bored.
I: So are you the new Schu?
K:
I: What next for Kimi?
K: Sleep.
I: Thanks, Kimi.
K: zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

Great. This year is going to resemble Terminator. The man who dominates will say 54 words for the year.

Good luck with that. Would be interesting to see an "Italian" Kimi..

By the way, is it me or does that guy only have two facial expressions? I've actually seen him smile once(I think I did..) and his other expression is that bored look he is so well known for..

They don't call Kimi the Iceman for no reason.

Kimi's love in using the phases

'we'll see what we can do tomorrow',
'I think blah blah blah but you never know'
'Anything can happen so blah blah blah'
'hopefully'
'Yeah'

are driving me mad!!! I have a voice in my head repeating these phases whenever i think of him

I don't mind that he doesn't talk that much since I don't like the sound of his voice at all.

Weird voice, limited vocabulary, limited number of facial expressions, no feelings...

He's just a funny little man that Kimi...

A funny little man who so happens to be a great driver

That's how he is, he neither answered Michael Schumacher's phone call who wanted to congrat him before the podium gala!
But as long as his right feet keeps pushing hard as he did in Melbourne...........
The first step to make him italian will start from the spaghetti, we will push 3-4 Kg a day in his mouth!


Still remember how Michael used to get happy when he was winning.............
Hope to see him sooner than possible leading the team!

Half-related, I went out to a Greek dinner the other night, and everyone thought I was retarded or anorexic because I wasn't eating heaps. I felt sick as when I left, and I kept getting all these weird looks...

Great food though

Something similar happened to me when I went to the States a couple of years ago.. I was eating as much as I usually would have done but still I got the "what's wrong why are you eating so little?" reactions.

Never had Greek food though...

(returning to F1 related talk soon.. )
