As Ferrari are celebrating their 800th GP some of the past drivers have had their say... here is what Kimi had to say.....

"I will never forget the three years I spent at Ferrari. At the wheel of a car from Maranello, I managed to realise my dream as a driver, which was to win the Formula 1 World Championship title, but it’s not just because of the results that I will never forget this experience. It was a very intense time, a mix of indescribable happiness and some difficult moments: throughout it all, we were always united, as befits a real team.

I took nine wins with Ferrari and three of them stand out. The first was in Melbourne, in 2007, because I could not ask for more than to start my career with the Reds in this way. Then there was the last one at Spa last year, because winning in those circumstances, with a car that was not as good as that of the opposition, was a real morale booster for the team, which was going through a particularly complicated time. Then, there was the victory in Sao Paolo, which brought me the world title and no other words are needed to explain why that race is special for me.

My character and how I express myself is very different to the Italian way, but that did not stop us from understanding each other and the emotions we shared. I gave my maximum effort over those three years and I got so much in return and even if, in the end, we went our separate ways, I will always have some really nice memories.”

Thanks for this. Although I'm more than sure that these words are very polished. Kimi wouldn't have said it the way it's written down. But, I'm sure that he said so about those 3 wins. Awww I would've picked these 3 victories too! Kimi.... <-- :hug:

The real Kimi would have said "Yah, I mean that does not interest me." Then he'll be prompted by the pesky interviewer to give a better answer, to which he'd reply, "It's nice."

Im a bit disappointed by Kimis pace so far. I had hoped he would be as fast as Wilson and Østberg. Maybe he is just pacing himself for the 2nd run through the same stages. 10th overall so far. But already 43 seconds behind Østberg in 9th after 4 stages.

Moominpappa,that's a great picture....
I hope ish is feeling better....at least it will be all over...
as for me a very hard day: as i said very difficult studying, arrangements for a new place,a sudden toothacke ( for the first time in my life, and i'm not even home! But a nice dentist here in England solved the problem for this poor foreigner....)
so, life is hard, but: when the going gets tough, the tough get going.......we never give up.....

No,no Kinga.....you must think that all pains go away....Once you are healthy (and even if not, if you can manage it in some extent...) you can face everything! Try to remember how many times we feel like the sky has fallen on our heads, aND THEN WE SEE THAT THE STORM HAS PASSED....ALL IS ROLLING...AND MOMENTS ARE SO PRECIOUS TO LOOSE BY BEING PESSIMISTIC....so come on, keep on rolling....
