Kimi Raikkonen Wins F1 World Championship!!

10


With the title all but won, Lewis Hamilton hands the world championship to Kimi Raikkonen. After losing several places at the start in an effort to keep Fernando Alonso behind him and conceding a brilliant start by Kim, Lewis later suffered technical issues that dropped it back to 18th. He clawed his way back to 7th place to tie Fernando Alonso in points at 109. With Kimi’s 1st place, he ended the year with 110 earning him the title.

In what could be considered a magic gift, Kimi has finally shed the years of tumult to bask in the glory of yippee-ville. He even commented that he is much happier at Ferrari than the “other” team and had a terrific interview post-race.

Lewis will wait another year to prove that he is the greatest thing to ever happen to F1 and we will then endure another year of terrific racing and PR campaigns to allow the rest of the world to finally just concede that Lewis is better than any man who has climbed into an F1 car irrespective of no titles.

Congratulations to Kim and Ferrari for placing the nail in the controversy-ridden year of McLaren.

Do You Think Lewis Screwed up once again because he just can’t think of the big picture but instead had to race Kim last race and Fernando this race too too hard at the wrong times—and of course cost him the championship?

My Take Yes

BobHereYo- One Very Very (did I mention Very?) Happy Kimi Fan!

Really anxious to read what Peter Windsor has to say ’bout Lewis “born to drive perfectly” Hamilton and his work the last two races. His report on SPA race on F1 Racing was simply a crazy piece of s***.

And of course, a very very very happy man (although Alonso didn’t make it finally). Kimi has won more races than anyone. He’s a well deserved champion. Congratulations.

And some condolence words to Bernie and Ron. What a perfect disaster they had managed. Bernie’s last words about his world champion preferences must be very difficult to eat at this moment. Maybe a constipation?

Great point, Arch. It will be interesting to see Peter’s comments as well as Matt Bishop’s Press release. ;)

Yes Neg. Latest stuff from Peter is really shameful. I can’t understand why such magazine which intends to be read all over the world has turned so extremely biased. And with SPA report he really found his limit. I remember he said something like perfect Hamilton being slower than Alonso was a surprise to everybody, including Hamilton himself. Maybe if he would study logical in high school…… (you know, if A then B, it is equal to No B then No A). If Hamilton was perfect he always would have been faster than Alonso (or anyone else). I don’t pay… Read more »

Yes but if Lewis and Alonso had equal cars then Lewis knew that he couldn’t keep pace with the Ferraris so his best bet was to race the Ferraris (and alonso) hard into turn one. This isn’t to say that Lewis’s mistake into turn wasn’t stupid because it was but the statement that he didn’t have to push hard in turn one is bunk. This is F1 after all and if you don’t do it in turn one, good luck with trying to actually pass someone. Now where this bit of insight was yesterday, I don’t know. I’m going to… Read more »

If you listen to our podcast, Arch, there was a similar incident with the US commentators when Bob Varsha made a comment about it being a shame that Hamilton wasn’t on the podium as he would have made a worthy champion. Perhaps true but it took me back a little in the sense that all these years they have not had that kind of bias. Perhaps because it was Schumacher and most of them don’t like him. Now they have, in Lewis, a young man they can get excited about. Peter is a Brit and he certainly does see something… Read more »

Lewis is something we should be excited about – maybe not as excited as the British press but what did they have before, Jenson Button?!

And I thought about getting F1 Racing again but then I looked at the price and decided to buy several bottles of wine instead.

What better way to sum up the season with Bobby Burns! Delightful.
