That translation is wrong.

Original article in Portuguese:
JACQUES VILLENEUVE: Acho que ele é o mesmo. Kimi, na minha opinião, estava desinteressado e Felipe o derrotou com facilidade. Há sempre um ou dois anos em que as coisas não andam bem. O carro não encaixa ao seu jeito, as coisas não funcionam. É preciso pouco na F-1 para que elas não estejam em seu nível máximo. Um outro problema é que Felipe venceu Kimi com facilidade. Se Kimi venceu o Mundial o fez por sorte, não porque merecia. Felipe merecia bem mais. Todo ano era mais competente que Kimi e, para ele, era fácil derrotá-lo.


The translation you posted (I know it’s not yours, I’m not blaming you, ok?):
JACQUES VILLENEUVE: For me he's still the same. Im my opinion, Kimi in 2008 was very distracted, Felipe beat him with ease. There's always one year – or a couple – when things don't go well. The car doen't go with your driving style, things just don't work properly. It takes very little in F1 for things to not work to the max. Felipe was clearly ahead, and if Kimi won the championship, that was very lucky, because Felipe deserved it more. He was more effective than Kimi and, for him, it was easy to beat Raikkonen.


Correct one:
JACQUES VILLENEUVE: For me he's still the same. Im my opinion, Kimi in 2008 was very distracted, Felipe beat him with ease. There's always one year – or a couple – when things don't go well. The car doen't go with your driving style, things just don't work properly. It takes very little in F1 for things to not work to the max. Felipe was clearly ahead, and if Kimi won the championship, was because he was lucky, NOT BECAUSE HE DESERVED IT. Felipe deserved it more. He was more effective than Kimi and, for him, it was easy to beat Raikkonen.


Funny enough, the guy who translated the interview forgot the most important part of it: the part Autosport used for their headline and the one Villeneuve is being mocked for. :roll::

saw pics of Coulthard at the new circuit, looked like he was driving on gravel. A bit more rally than F1.

Raikkonen may also keep rallying

Raikkonen may also go to Le Mans

Raikkonen may also go to NASCAR

It's just pure speculation.

Kubica has thumb missing from his other hand? :blink: :blink:

http://racingnewsflash.com/content/kubica-has-thumb-missing-his-other-hand wrote:Finnish ex-F1 driver Mika Salo says Robert Kubica has a thumb missing from his other hand. Salo met the doctrors on other race series, and the doctors told it will be hard for Kubica to continue racing, but the doctors are doing their best.

- On our last days Kubica's doctors were responsible about our things. They said they believe he will not drive much anymore. He is on a bad situation, that there are fingers missing - a thumb is missing from his other hand, Mika Salo told on MTV3 during Free Practice sessions at friday.

- They believe he is not able to drive on the professional side anymore. But the doctors are still trying and they are doing their best.

Doctors say that Robert in September will be able to test in the simulator. Without a thumb, it would be impossible.

Well he had his thumb a few months ago! I reckon it's a mistranslation from someone.
