Time to turn on the heat Kimi

It seems that I’m not the only one disappointed in Kimi Raikkonen this year. According to a news item on Pittpass.com and another on gpudate.

“Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has turned the heat up on Kimi Raikkonen, saying the Ice-Man has so far failed to achieve his potential with the Italian team, despite winning the season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

We’ve got just over half the season to go. Lets hope Kimi will show us his ferocious competitive form over the next few races – and become the F1 race car driver of the last few years – feared by his teamates and competitors.


  1. At first I thought he was just taking a while to get used to the ’07 spec tyres. But seeing how Alonso has got used to them now I think there must be more to it.

    I may have underestimated Massa in the past but I can’t understand why Raikkonen isn’t closer to him. Between that, the team’s decline in form since the start of the year, and now the Nigel Stepney controversy, there’s something funny going on at Ferrari.
