Always had faith in Kimi

Kimi is the rightful heir to the throne!

I've always said it and I always knew it...no more mcmeltdowns, no more wings flying off at speed, crazy montoya isn't running into people at the end of tunnels (except in nascar), etc. etc.

Give Kimi a dependable car (ferrari) and nothing will stop him...always said it and always knew it

I think that Kimi is going to be one of the best drivers ever...

Kimi is to Schumacher as Schumacher is to Senna

I hope I'm wrong about this, but I heard Kimi isn't the best person when it comes to technical feedback.

The Ferrari's good at the moment yes, but I have a sneaky suspicion that as the season is going to progress, the Ferrari of Kimi's going to fall back.

As I say though, hope I'm wrong.

Well, as like every year, when a team wins the first race everyone tries to be as fast as them, but the faster team uses their own data collected and just makes themselves faster...we should see evening out at around the fourth race, but I highly doubt it because Kimi is always consistant as well as Ferrari (perfect combination)

Those rumours have pretty much been trashed by the engineers at Ferrari, including Räikkönen's race engineer Chris Dyer.

It is interesting that it was always the Ferrari/Schumacher fans claiming Kimi wasn't fast, it was the car, and that he was a car breaker etc, etc.

Now he's a winner for Ferrari, he's their golden boy.

Of course. But I think that the whole "Kimi can't give feedback of the car" rant is due to him being somewhat quiet unlike his predecessor.

And if he couldn't test, isn't Felipe in the team to do that so that Kimi always get's a fast car?

By far ! I think Kimi has problems coping with stress.. His predecessor could handle it much better.

Plus he is not a pleasant guy to certain annoying little kids at a karting track 8 years ago

Congrats on the win!

However, I'd like to know how Honda did in the race.

Unfortunately, Speed Channel had it on real late last night and after ALMS I was shot.

Besides a silent Finn with problems expressing dissatisfaction would be unheard of now wouldn't it.

I always seem to be less convincing when I am serious.
