I agree it is a great place to be :) - on other forums I used to get very despondent and even feel the insults thrown at Kimi personnally as it seemed whatever he did got criticised which was totally unfair.

Now I know I can come here and really enjoy the company of like minded Kimi fans (who are the best) also catch up with the news and lovely pictures of him without the danger of being of being attacked by some Kimi hating individual which is really comforting - thank you :hug: .

The thread would have to address all reasons why he's being criticized and be very well documented.

If someone is very well documented, please make the thread, I believe it is more than necessary.


Lucian, if it becomes necessary then I will do it. I have archived somewhere all the engineers praises and explanations along with Domenicali telling how they argued constantly with Kimi about the chassis in 2008 which they returned to him for Spa - not before. Things like this.

But I get a rash if I hear 'beaten by Massa', 'eating ice cream', etc etc etc so it would have to be a good reason to go through those things.

In the earlier forum they didn't even read the arguments so in order to save energy I started to archive all the articles and just posted them one after another again and again but it was useless - they jumped over the articles with arguments and went on with their bashing comments - it was insane.

Now I feel for Massa since he is getting the same treatment. Kimi-fans had no problem with Massa, it was the other fans (not Massa-fans) who constantly threw it in our face and like Acropolis said - it goes round and round and round again without getting any depth, let alone lead anywhere. That was the problem, there was no discussion.

But it's different here :shhh:

You have been just great with these people...
I don't count myself in because I'm new and haven't gone thru what they've been thru...

But I have followed their problems and a totally impartial, hostile, even dictatorical behaviour against them as a guest without dearing to say a word....So THANKS!!!!!THIS IS A GREAT PLACE....


+1 :)
I have followed these wonderful people through their ups and downs from the previous forums. so, they really deserved the chance to be able to speak their mind freely and thanks to you Iceman1, and the moderators Kimi fans are reunited again! Thanks a lot! :hug:


Thank you Marrie and Acropolis, that was so sweet of you :hug:

I hate it how on other forums people constantly attack Kimi but hey...... He has the biggest fanbase in motorsport so we cant all be wrong.

So pull up a seat and enjoy as you are very welcome here :hug:

thank you again this is a great place. :)


I can only agree, with you guys.
It already seemed to me, that here might be one of the very less places on the net, where Kimi and his fans aren't being bashing by other members... :)
I experienced a lot in that way and that's why this place here is so special. Full with great people! :)

PS: @everyone who wants to talk about Kimi. In this thread, it's not only about Kimi-pics, please feel free to post articles and other stuff, we can discuss about.... :wave:

Usually I just ignore the haters because most of them are just trolls anyway. :zz:

I see it could just feed the trolls so I understand your concern. But I think of a workaround: just lock it for regular members and only moderators could add when something has to be added (of course it's impossible to address everything in just one post so there would have to be a few more). You would be a great moderator since you're very active here and have good manners.

If no such thread will be made, I'd like if you could send me other things that I didn't read, as they would help me deal with those anti-fans much better.

Great post! :)

Actually I've gathered all of Kimi's activities in my video for his 30th birthday last year. I didn't want to leave out anything, wanted to represent everything that can be important for him. Here you can watch it if you'd like to:

You can see how cute, shy and innocent he was at those early days....
Then you could see how the press and politics became unbearable for him...
He became from :) to :( ...or :<>: .....
This year I think he was again :) and :zz:
I start to believe the RB option by July thing.....

And Kinga, I just love all your videos, I have seen them many times.....

Hi Lucian :hug:

Be careful what you wish for... it might come true :zz:

As for the justifications and documents, I'll take a look and see if I can get them sent to you or put up a thread - which would be crucial if he goes back to F1 :fear:

Can't you Finnish people let us have him? for a while perhaps....
