Kovalainen has more to offer

8

Maybe it’s just me but I find Heikki to be a very mature and well adjusted guy.  My hunch is that McClaren may have a champion alright but it may not be who we’re all thinking it’s going to be.  Here is hoping Kovy can show up this weekend and start his march for the title now.

“I am sure there is more to come, and I am improving more and more,” Kovalainen told reporters at Monaco.

“It has been surprisingly good since the beginning of the season, but I think I can do better. I am sure I can do better. That is our target and that is what we are still working on, trying to improve the performance all the time.”

“I am very, very happy working here, and I know a lot more now than what I did at the beginning of the year – like how things operate, and how the race weekends go,” he said.

“There will be more to come, that is for sure, but it is little by little. To be honest I was surprised over the winter how I got used to this car and used to this team – it is my type of environment here. I feel I have settled in here very well.”

The question is:::: will Ron let him free to defeat his beloved Lewis?

That is the question and of course he will say they are equal. Like years past, I highly suspect that theory. Mika and David come to mind.

NC, do you recall my pick for the driver’s championship that I made before the season? I still contend that IF Ron let’s Heikki compete, and IF a pacifier large enough to fit in AntHam’s mouth can be found, Mercedes will have a champion – and it will not be a guy who has his eyebrows groomed.

Yep, I am witness that Dave did call for Kovy as 2008 champ. So let this be a record of that selection. He told me this in confidence way before the season started. I think I agreed he’s capable and then prattled on about Kimi and Massa and Lewis and Nick. sounds about like something I would do. :)

I like Heiki, and wish he would outscore Hamilton, but did anyone notice that maybe he is inheriting Kimi’s bad Finnish luck from McLaren? I mean come on, a blown rim in Spain, and a puncture in Turkey! I think once Ron retires (which could very well be soon), Kovy is going to make Lewis the clear #2 driver.

A Finnish driver will never be the #1 on a British team that also has a British driver, particularly if it’s Lois in the other seat. As much as I would love to see Heikki make Lois look like #2 (pun intended), it won’t happen at McLaren unless Lois implodes mentally.

Turkey was good enough to impress me. Now if only there was a way to convince Ron that this is the guy………

Dave,

Forgetting Hakkinen and Coulthard are you?
