Source? Or is this just an assumption?

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

A problem with power steering is that rules require it to be mechanical. Due to that changing the setup requires lots of work. If they could use some other systems and computer control, it would be easier, but rules are what they are. I just checked from google about the Kimi and Lotus problems and...

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

Was talking about Monaco only :lol:

Yeah he still knows to handle difficult situations (he is one of the best when it comes to such stuff me thinks) but his pace has been pretty poor the whole weekend! That´s what I meant :)

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

Losing FP1 dry running cost him-setup time and lost tyre data. I'm sure it cost him points! Their main problem were the supersofts. They don't use the supersofts in FP1. That's what doesn't add up. But even if they did struggle on SS he could have qualified 4th-5th (as Grosjean) which would have he...

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

Kimi should do all the tests possible. There are not too much of them. Häkkinen used to sit from sunrise to sundown in the cockpit just waiting what to test next. If Kimi really didn't want to test it in simulator then it is nothing but his own fault. They could at least found out that it was too f...

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

and the team felt there was some unused potential in the Lotus as Raikkonen faded from sixth early on to ninth by the finish. Wasn't he out there a lot longer than he was supposed to be because of Lotus's raindance? It is 2012, teams with high-tech equipments can not predict the weather for the nex...

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

But then again I dunno maybe he thought that this problem can´t be solved with simulation work? If this was possible they already could have tried 10000 solutions? :huh: Well anyway if true I can understand why some mechanics who are working their asses off are frustrated with him and his performanc...

Re: Kimi Raikkonen returns to F1 with Lotus Renault GP

I asked my friend who's testing for Lotus and told me the following: Boullier and Lopez were pissed off with him because they did special steering for him and asked him to come and try it on the simulator before going to the race but he didn't. Wow the bosses are unhappy, Kimi's future at Lotus is ...
