I hope Kimi comes back strong. Unfortunately normally it doesn't turn out that way. Look at previous comebacks like Michael Schumacher, or Jacques Villeneuve. Both great drivers, but came back and had less then par performances. Michael Schumacher still has yet to prove he can even keep pace with Nico Rosberg. I hope kimi proves me wrong.

Martin Brundle says his driving style is similar to Michael's. I hope that is not an omen :pray:

His biggest challenge will be tyres. According BBC they behave very differently from Bridgestones and Vettel has been the best in adapting to them.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/formula_one/15926791.stm

Only six days testing before the first race puts him into tough spot. There isn't much time to develop the car particularly when cars are preset in the factory to each track.

http://www.racer.com/racer-special-f1s-life-on-the-edge/article/219407/

LRGP must work with this years data and hope that the preset fits to Kimi. Hopefully they'll build a car which is enough oversteering since that Kimi can handle better. In Charlotte he even got the attention of Carl Edwards during the race when his car at some point was very loose. It made Carl wonder who is driving that car until he saw Perky Jerky at the back of Kimi's car.

Berger would not have brought back Raikkonen

Looks fake to me too. Why would Kimi stop tweeting when he left F1 and then after two years be suddenly back. His English also looks too good when compared to Kimi's English. ''hmm''

Oh well, at least Berger said Räikkönen has talent and is good for F1. He only called him drunkard and lazy. It could have been really worse: in the same show he said Buemi and Alguersuari are "average" at best. :roll::

He is weird. He thinks Kimi is good for F1 but looks like not good enough for him to bring Kimi back :n

On the other hand:

Damon Hill reckons Raikkonen has "a couple of more world F1 championships" in him

Kimi clearly divides opinions. Either people like or dislike him. Could be because of his media image ''hmm''
