Well, 2008 was mediocre (probably more so than 2009), but I don't see the sense in devaluing 2007. His first year in the team and he managed to win lots of races and finally capitalize on McLarens blunders, what more should he have done?
I remember kimi's win at silverstone in 07, and that was a brilliant drive.
along with China and Japan that year, these drives were sensational.
Kimi's 07 championship was well deserved. i liked kimi, and I still do now. he was a Ferrari champion, and that gets respect, no matter what.
what annoys me is that Ferrari fans like kimi, Ferrari likes kimi, so I don't get the problem? I mean what are the kimi fans main gripe? is it because he was replaced by Alonso? I'm sorry but It seemed like Kimi was going to retire at the end of 2010 anways, no matter whY his performance.
he was on more than what alonso gets, so he would have been expected to do just as good a job, if not better, but I'm afraid that everyone can see that Alonso is doing a great job there. so the decision is surely well vindicated.
