I think it will be interesting to see just how hard Kimi will work on developing the new car.While he is talented,it seems his motavation has been questioned in the past.Can't wait for next year already.

Everyone wants to see a top driver at RB to see just how much of an advantage Vettel has with the car, including me. I'm also interested in Kimi going to Ferrari to see if that car is as "bad" as we hear.

Also interested to see if they can get a setup that both drivers like. Kimi and my brother 'Nando have very different driving styles. I think that's been a big problem for Massa for a while, but obviously Kimi will have more say. I predict that if the new teammates have a falling out, car setup bias will be the first shot in the war.

Wow, I really didn't think Kimi would return to Ferrari, but now they will have a real driver powerhouse there. Hopefully they can put a car together to put Vettel back in the pack a few places.

It's too bad they cant do a mid season switch. After the last couple snoozers, I'm ready now.

"I am delighted to welcome back Kimi to the Scuderia with which he was crowned World Champion," Domenicali said. "I sense he is very happy to be returning to Maranello and very determined to tackle the work that awaits him in the best way possible."

Hmmmm....

the team has now confirmed Raikkonen will return on a two-year deal.

I wonder if he will make it that long?

If these guys can work together as a team and get a half way decent car, there will be a lot of happy Ferrari fans. I think Kimi will be fine. As much as I like Alonso, he definitely has some maturing to do in the "I'm not getting what I want" department.

Have there ever been 2 number 1s at a team that actually got along and performed well together? All I seem to recall is the fights among them.

No question about it.
The Scuderia will have 2 of the 4 elite drivers in F1.
Now, if they can get a decent car for them.....eek.gif

“He (Raikkonen) will go about it in his own way. If he heard a radio message ‘Fernando is faster than you’, Kimi Raikkonen is not going to move out of the way.

“He’s going to radio back and say ‘So why is he behind me, then, if he’s faster than me?”And a few expletives along the way.


LOL.....yep, sounds like Kimi!

Cadillac has a recent(?) history of making GREAT looking concept cars on a regular basis.
IMO, better than any other American manufacturer.cool.gif

We will all have to see how this all plays out, but I am among those that predict that it will end in tears.

I thought the first sentence of this paragraph was a direct slap at Fernando's previous indiscretions involving contact with RB:


"For anyone thinking that the choice of Kimi is somehow an anti-Alonso choice, I can put their minds at rest: at Ferrari, everyone knows the interests of the team come first and only then those of the individual. Fernando is a key asset for this team and he will be for a long time. I'm sure he is the first to be happy with a choice made to strengthen the group, because he is too intelligent not to realise that a stronger team can only be an advantage."

Just a heads up for Singapore coverage..

Practice 2 is tape delayed and airs on 9/20 at 9:30am

Quali is live on 9/21 at 1am

The race is live on 9/22 at 7:30am

When I looked at my DVR's To Do list, I thought some of these times looked odd, but these are what I got from NBCS's website.

Question: Anyone with a DirecTV DVR find it impossible to set-up a Series Recording for the F1 Pre-Race? For unknown reason, the option for a SR does not appear when selecting a showing, and my Key Word auto-recording for "Formula One" does not pick it up, although "Formula One" is in the title. Bizarre.

On DirecTV, the guide data for F1 Pre-Race is fubar. I cannot record it as a series. It only shows as individual episodes, so I have to schedule it separately for each race.

We want to see Alonso challenged by his team-mate and indeed finish on top. We want him to throw the gauntlet at Vettel, that he beat an equal driver in equal machinery, fair and square. What we don't want to see are toys thrown out of the pram. We don't want to see Alonso go down in history as a cry-baby, a whiner, a problem Champion who shivered at the prospect of an equal team-mate. This is his test.

How he handles Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari is how Fernando Alonso will be remembered.


Absolutely!

That qualifying time can't be correct. My Comcast guide says 1 am too, but the F1 website says that qualifying is at 8 am central time when I convert to local time. The practice 2 time would actually be live according to the F1 site.
