Lets put it this way i am not exactly a Kimi-fan.But i am a Ferrari-holic.Ferrari pay this guy some over the top money and he is a damn good driver...........

He actually slept till half an hour before his first race for Sauber now that's coolness(The Iceman).


Now you may feel that the above comment was some fan comment for attention but lets face it the Iceman or rather The Flying Iceman is THE fastest driver on track today.The Fact that he actually gave the Legendary Michael Schumacher of the Ferrari clan a run for his money in just his third year speaks volumes of his talent.Now in Schumi's place in ferrari's pits questions are being raised at this guys commitment and his place at ferrari.

Some of my friends here have advocated Alonso to replace the Flying Finn but do you really think its worth it?

Here you have Kimi the fastest man on track.He is a great team guy a championship contend or and is known to be very calm, cool, and calculating in his race strategy.The guy actually demonstrated this at Spa with his clever use of KERS.He actually held off a faster Force India with a bloke named Giancarlo Fisichella in it.Now thats performance.

Then You have Fernando Alonso.He moved to a big team(Renault is not a big team though it is a bigger than normal team...).McLaren precisely.Kimi got along pretty well with Ron Dennis and rest of his team and his co driver Jaun Pablo Montoya a man of protean talent himself.Well Alonso at McLaren was history in the making.And even if this bloke has two titles he doesn't fit a ferrari drivers definition.He isn't the one.

And then you have nobody face it.. It's the truth.

Sebastien is on contract with RBR(imagine them doing a Force India...)                       Kubica may but honestly Kimi is better  and then you have these other blokes from nowhere.

Kimi is not just another driver.He is the protean talent ferrari deserves.He may not exactly be your favorite but the guy is the one to drive for ferrari next year whatever you say.

The guy may lack motivation but so many doubters this year might be the fuel for him and mark my words if the guy drives out the scarlet car we might see another Red Baron...
