When he was at McLaren fron 02-06 man he was such a different driver, hustling the car, wringing every inch of the track but with Ferrari his style has been different and he hasnt been the same - no real memorable races from him - maybe just Spa 2007 and Spain 2008, but apart from that he hasnt had amazing performances (Monaco 2005 comes to mind)

Was that article about kimi going to McLaren from autosport?

Hungary this year was a great performance by Kimi, so was last race. Spa 08 too. It seems that Kimi's oversteery driving style is coming back a bit this year.

i think it is looking more and more possible that this will be Kimi's last year. i think he will be going over to WRC.

Ferrari's car doesn't suit his driving style, that's the reason of not-so-good performances there.

Just sad that I'm 99% sure that he isn't anymore changing team, Kimi has said many times that Ferrari is his last team for sure. :(

I'd like to see him back at Macca, but I don't see it happening. Also, are there any other teams willing to pay his enormous salary or will he take a pay cut?
