De la Rosa said he hoped Raikkonen, who is still considering becoming a member, would also sign up to ensure that every driver on the grid is in the GPDA.

"We wish Kimi was there, as he is one of the top guys, so hopefully he will agree soon too," said the Spaniard.


Kimi too busy boozing to think about the GPDA?

He should join now. There is no reason not to now that Lewis and Massa have.

Why would it have stopped him before?

Why bother joining now when it could be his last year in F1?

Does it really matter if he joins or not? Obviously, the GPDA would have full representation over the field but Kimi isn't exactly going to oppose any GPDA decisions.

He is one of the top guys in F1 though, if he was going to join, he would have done a long time ago.

He stayed out because of the politics is what i heard, not that he is high and mighty. I dont remember people calling Massa that when he left GPDA or Lewis for waiting so long to join.

Isn't there a fee for every point earned?

Obviously he should be kicked out of the sport for this.

How dare he not want to join in? How unprofessional?

Bad Kimi. Go to my room.

What difference is he going to make?

He doesnt really seem bothered by any of the poltical decisions in F1. He just drives the car as quick as he can. That is his job, and he does it well.

Ok, I understand if he did join, it would be every driver involved being a member, which is a good thing, but i cant see him having an opinion on any of the matters discussed, so why should he join? Just let him do his job which is drive, the go home.

Why every non-GPDA member is rushing to join the organization nowadays as if free ice creams and coke being handed out at each meeting?

I think everyone i spushing for unification. The drivers will then have a more powerful voice as will the teams. Stability is needed.

since even focusing on driving seems too hard for him sometimes this would be a distraction.
he's not the kind of guy to care about anything, i don't think he would bring value to gpda

Guessing but maybe the late starts are pushing the drivers together. Clearly they are professional and will do what is asked of them but the sun in Australia was a problem and then the race with the rain and darkness in Malaysisa has perhaps made them all feel that they need some input into these decisions and the GPDA is the way to get themselves heard. I didn't read one comment from the drivers post Australia that didn't mention just how difficult it was to see in the closing laps.
Kimi? I sense he's going to do what ever he feels like doing with little thought to anyone but himself.
