Ralf Schumacher has launched an astonishing attack on Kimi Raikkonen, claiming that if he acted in the same manner as F1's golden boy, he would be branded "an arrogant idiot." It's well known in the F1 paddock

makes no sense at all, forget budget, if it aint performing i see no reason why kimi would go at all. The only place he would/should ever go is somewhere that will give him a WC ,Mclaren or stay, ah maybe BMW :cheesy: :cheesy:

Nah Kimi lacks a lot of things, but the most important thing he has is natrual speed :mrgreen: he just needs to motivate himself more... Lots of drivers have that problem...

And welcome to the forum reyhan :D...

thanks, nice to be here, by the way I would love to see Kimi in BMW in a future, with half a second more race pace, great start which BMW has and the "old" Kimi could be a scary combination :lol:

Completely agree with you. It's obvious that every time something gets in his way. And when everything goes well, it's him that is slow and can't adapt to the car.
But remember that Massa took a while to get used to the F-248 when he joined Ferrari and now Kimi is having the same problem. The McLaren is probably the easiest to drive and that's why Alonso adapted a lot quicker to his car.

i believe he'll stay at ferrari.......but i think it's not pure bad luck for kimi, it seems that he really can't look after his car...or simply put - he pushes it to the brink of destruction. at mclaren he had a lot of retirements and grid penalties due to engine problems or whatever, but whoever his teammate was, rarely suffer the same. maybe it's just that, but i really don't know, just my opinion :D

kimi is also exactly what toyota don't need. they need a driver that can lead a team, like dc, webber, alonso or wurz, who will move them forward development-wise. no pure-speed driver is going to make a slow car faster throughout the year no matter how fast they are. because they are so lost technically they need a driver who can help take them forward and develop the car, not someone who will bail home as soon as the race is over.

erm i think kimi is locked at ferrari ieven if he likes it or not...think of the humiliation he will have to face if he comes back pleading to mclaren for a drive...after he betrayed and lied us!
and i don't see why kimi would want to go to toyota, i mean does he really want to be the kind of guy that motivates the team and builds the team to push forward like schumi?

anyway kimi already said that ferrari is his 'last team' :roll: he's thinking abou retirement already

I don't think toyota or honda needs a driver as Kimi. They have to develop its cars better, not to get driver to fight for win.

And if kimi goes to Toyota, will Alonso go to Ferrari?

I don't think that Kimi is out of Ferrari, but, if he is, I think he will go to a more competitive team than Toyota.

Toyota are there cause they have the money, nothing else, and their chance of success in F1 is practically negligible.
