Lack of discernable emotion is the problem here. Win, lose, or on fire, Kimi seems completely neutral about his situation. He's a Vulcan. If he's winning, no feelings are showing, and people think he's got nerves of steel. Losing? He clearly must not care, 'cause he's not going on about "we must give it our all, blah blah blah".
I think someone like Alonso is probably the polar opposite, he really sees to get down on the situation when it's not going well, but that turns around fast with success.
Which driver would you prefer to have working for you?
the one who is faster.
Kimi seems to be the kind of driver who is not enjoying cruising around to get 1 or 2 points. but once he feels he can fight for a win he is giving his all, I think last year in Spa we had good example of that. he crashed, his chances for a title evaporated so he settled down and for the rest of the season he was doing what was the best for a team without taking unnecessary risk.
he is not the only sportsmen who is keeping his emotions inside. Pavo Nurmi or Indurain, to name just two, presented similar attitude but no one can say they were not been great.
