I dfisagree. I think he is still better / quicker than more than half the drivers on the grid. He aint what he used to be though.

He's a safe pair of hands who I can see being signed for another season

Yes....the best car finishing 5th or 6th is a great achievement. ::)

From memory, he has been on the podium in almost every race so far this year.
He also knocked Hamilton off on the first lap at Silverstone, which probably earned him a contract for next year.  ;D

Its all 'dangle berries' now anyway. It should be 200 miles of hell for leather, no stops. Not this wank of artificial overtaking, pitstops and tyre management.

Two laps of the M25 should do it :D

I completely agree, as do the drivers. Its the t wats who run the show who are ruining it.
The cars now although putting out lots of power are a joke, with all the hybrid crap. They sound like a very loud BSA Goldstar.
When they did the 70th anniversary parade at Silverstone, one of the cars involved was a Red Bull from about 5 years ago.
The sound of the thing was spine tingling and it looked as though it was going a lot faster than the current cars, although Im sure it wasnt.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Despite all that though, Hamiltons performances at both Silverstone and Hockenhiem were something very special indeed. Worthy of comparison with any of the greats from the past.

Kimi can't believe his luck. He doesn't even pretend to be interested in his job yet still gets the thick end of 1 million every time he turns up for a leisurely Sunday afternoon drive. :)

He is very laid back out of the car, and completely disinterested in any of the showbiz circus that goes with F1. Apparently he is often sound asleep ten minutes before climbing in the car. It just his character I think.
Hhe has a bit of a party animal reputation though when on his own time. Likes plenty of drink and pretty ladies.

For my money, Kimi is one of the best f1 drivers out there,agree he hasnt won any races for a while, but his podium finish record surpasses vettels every season,ferrari dont want him to win as he is paid 5 times less than golden steering wheel basher  :y

Agfreed. As he has got older he has slipped from a very exciting winner, who was always great to watch, to become the perfect number two driver.
