Yeah I read it. I follow all news on the press about Kimi. That's just a feeling not a fact. Kimi is not in a good shape both mentally and race-wise.

I don't think Kimi would have any reason to lie in his interviews. He pretty much tells what he thinks and doesn't try to do any PR speech like some drivers do.

Kimi has criticized McLaren multiple times after joining Ferrari so he didn't seem to fit there as well as many would have thought.

IMO people are confusing the car's performance and driver's performance again, which is usual, and that's why people are saying things like "Kimi isn't interested, Kimi's not in a good shape" even though he's still overtaking and pushing in the race as much as he can. But his performance is like with everybody else limited by the car and other circumstances so bad results don't mean directly that "this guy has lost his touch" or anything.

Yeh, of course I understood. I just think if Kimi gets bored F1, he immediately should leave it like Juan Pablo did before. It would be a torture for both himself and us watching a driver who in fact doesn't want to drive. There are lots of young lads waiting for a seat like S. Vettel, B. Senna.

Talking about Bruno Senna, I really hope he gets the seat that Vettel leaves next season, at the STR :thumbsup:

My bet for that is that Bourdais will get dropped and that Buemi and Senna will come into that seat.

Nah, I think they'll give Bourdais another year with Senna alongside him,while Buemi will race in GP2 again and test for Toro Rosso and Red Bull.But we'll see. And I fancy Vettel to replace Kimi for 2010 at Ferrari

Maybe you're right about the STR stuff, although I think Bourdais is a dead-end driver, and past his sell-by date in terms of age anyway, and I reckon also that Buemi is way experienced enough in F1 and GP2 cars.

Vettel will be on a two year (or possibly even three year) leash. Think 2011/2012 for the Vettel/Ferrari combination.

its becoming logical link ... :lol:

Schumacher: ''I have a close link to Felipe, Kimi on the other hand isn't a very talkative type. Apart from the Ferrari team I sometimes phone Vettel, but then we're not talking about job-related things. I like him, he's simply a kind and open guy.''


Kimi's supporter have overreacted to the situation but its norm now :lol:

That looks so amazing!! Needless to say this track kills Barcelona in terms of the actual track configuration. Let us hope the racing is much much better.

EDIT: also worth watching is the first lap of the GT race, to get an idea of what traffic is like through the first lap (although obviously an F3 video would be more relevant, but hey).

watch it here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=7NPqlkicO9U&feature=related

To the best of my knowledge, this GT race was won by GP2 stars Mike Conway and Ho-Pin Tung.

==BACK ON TOPIC==
Possibly some showers for Sunday. I hope for a washout classic GP like 2006. That would be mega.

It depends what forecast you look at. The Autosport one says rain. So does the Budapest.com forecast. The Beeb and Meteo365 forecasts say it will be a hot, dry day.
