Hi Guys, I was wondering what you all think about the pros and cons of Kimi having a brand new race engineer for 2014, this new guy has never been in that position before, he was Alonso's chassis head engineer.
My concerns are that Stella and Alonso are very much like in autopilot after so many years, they know each other and how they need/want to work, what the driver needs as far as set up, etc. etc.
Not only Kimi needs to get to know with his new race engineer and learn how to communicate and the engineer needs to learn how to talk, when to talk, what to talk, how to set up the car to get kimi's liking, how to communicate with the rest of the team and management to get what kimi need, etc. etc.
There are so many new rules and changes and this new race engineer has never been in the position, he has zero experience, we don't even know if he knows how to read a race. I am sure Ferrari will not put a person that would not be suitable or able to do the job but I am affraid that kimi is under a huge handicap compare to Alonso (due to this issue).
What do you all think about it?
