I'd like to see Kimi in the same car as MS. I think Kimi is one of the best drivers at the moment but he doesn't have the car. Would be interesting to see him and MS on a level playing field....although I think MS would probably still win ;)

Even if it was just for his fantabulous in- and out-laps as demonstrated last weekend.

The thing that gets me is why drivers do that before and after a pitstop and not through the whole race...

I'd like to see YOU drive at your limit all the time. It's exhausting (and that would become dangerous for the driver himself and others), plus the car doesn't like it either. Remember? The keyword is 'nursing' your car home.

A rather humorous note from the Italian press after the European GP:
Tuttosport saying: "As long as he keeps up his hunger for victories, (Schumacher) can drive until he is 67. In the right car, he is unbeatable."

Let's hope that this is not a threat :mrgreen:

I should think it's partly psychological too. I'd like to know what Alonso was thinking when MS put in those blinding laps - you think you are doing well and that the guy behind you is fairly evenly matched, and then all of a sudden, you are majorly outclassed :)

Between the whip swinging dominatrix MS, the broom stick wielding RB and the candle and ice cube caressing JT, trust me they'll TEACH him submission!

Trust me, he'll like it - it's going to be sweetened by a hefty purse.

Latest news:


"My decision can take time and wait until the end of the year," said the 37-year-old. "Ferrari are ready to wait."

Looks like we can focus now on the season w/o distractions about Schumi's future.
But what does this mean for KR??? Weren't they (KR and his manager and Ferrari) waiting for MS to decide?

Okay, I rephrase this: what does it mean for FM? Toyota? Red Bull? Renault?

Well FM did alright today didn't he, and Fisi is back on form. Perhaps its too early to say.

Have to say that I have been surprised by FM's pace, he has been better than I expected so far.
