I really don't like when people come here, not knowing what they are talking about.
About Kimi, MS never had such good car as Lotus 2012. Also Kimi said , it is easier when you come back with good car.
But, this guys still come here talking BS. I would love to see Kimi in W01, then we could talk. Now the rookie is almost as good as Kimi in E20.
Cudos to Kimi for being gracious to Schumacher with his comments. Of course your comparison is a bit flawed as Schumacher has been beaten by Rosberg so far since his return. This is irregardless of how the car compared to other teams on the grid. Maybe Grosjean will prevail this year but so far Kimi looks like he is right back in the groove something that MS didn't appear to be able to do in his first two season back.
Seeing that you are so interested in Kimi's pov here is what he thinks about the Pirelli's:
What are your thoughts on the Pirelli tyres and the strategies needed for the best results?
KR: No matter what the tyres you always have to make a strategy to suit them best. The tyres are fine for me. For the strategy I work with my engineers and we make the best choices we can. Sometimes we get it right, like in Bahrain. Sometimes we get very close, like in Shanghai. After the race in China and after the qualifying in Bahrain, people probably started thinking that we are idiots and cannot do anything right. But we showed in the race why we did what we did. It was close already in China and this time our strategy paid back very nicely for us. It’s all part of racing and the same for everyone.
If Kimi can so quickly adapt after two years away what is Schumacher's problem? I think he needs to look at what he is doing on the track and perhaps adjust as the other drivers have done, even Hamilton has managed to adapt! The days of having the tires to 'scumacher' spec are long gone.
Also, the last thing imo that Schumacher needs is to be picking a fight, it is to distracting and will eventually effect his on track results. Come on Schumi just show us what you can do on the track and stop the pr campaigns.
ps. I was full of expectations that we would see Raikkonen and Schumacher battle it out in the same car, it would have been great. Schumacher though had other ideas and left Ferrari in 2006.
