Renault's attitude to the issue sucks a big time. Who ever tells such things if they really want a WDC driver to be a part of their team?

:thumbsup: Exactly. Compare McLaren's behavior when they were negotiating with Kimi. Whitmarsh and Haug had nothing but praise for Kimi when they were negotiating with him. This just indicates that Renault aren't actually serious.

That's what I think too. Renault don't really seem that excited about having Kimi driving their team, they seem more excited about being able to use his name for publicity and to attract sponsors.... :confused:

I mean, they are seriously having a hard time deciding between Petrov and Kimi?? Are they seriously equating the two of them?? I don't mean any insult to Petrov, but one is a WDC and one is a pay driver, if they claim that they are having such a difficult time deciding between the two they're being ridiculous.

You know what I think? I think its not about Kimi or Petrov. Its about Renault itself and their professionalism. They are dropping their pants as Bouillier previously said" much had to be changed if they had WDC in their team. They would have to have two very professional pit crew, lots of professional engineers and so on. I dont know if they have what it takes to have two very good driver.

If they truly want to be fighting for the WDC/WCC titles like they say they want to next year, they have to get the best drivers and improve the professionalism of their team in general. They need to do what it takes to win, not start asking themselves whether they can actually cope with two good drivers.

Eric Boullier sounds like a big idiot. Kimi should never join Reno as long as he is there.

On a second thought perhaps he has to act in this fashion. They cant let their reputation take a hit if kimi raikkonen turns down the driver. Hence all they can say just now is that they have options but yes saying it loud again and again and again is making them look like pricks.
Hopefully deep down eric must be praying that he gets to work with 2 world class drivers.

You have to remember that Formula One is a business. The aim is to make money and the best possible way to do so is to be the best. Maybe Renault have realised that Petrov has disappointed & Renault haven't expanded into Russia as expected. If they have Kimi then possibly they can attract sponsors and get the results that would negate the high cost of Raikkonen's probably salary.

And in the meantime they say that they are not sure about Kimi's commitment... Oh, dear... :<>:

Apparently Motoring News in the UK has an article about Kimi talking to Prodrive-Mini with Redbull money. Has anyone seen or heard about this article?

Yeah I have. I think its a pretty weak rumour to be honest. MN thinks Meeke & Gronholm/Ostberg will drive the Mini. They do suggest though that Monster want Block & Raikkonen...
