It's about time. He was dragging this on for too long.

Godspeed Kimi Raikkonen. Definitely a legend of the sport.

Will they promote Callum Illot next to Bottas? I don’t think Schwarzman is very impressive in F2.

Is it pretty much taken as read that Gio isn't continuing then?

Have Haas confirmed their 2022 drivers? Perhaps Schumi gets promoted to Alfa?

Turned down the chance to meet Vettel at Silverstone in 2007. He was a test driver at the time and I didn't think it was worth queuing!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Unfortunately I agree. I love Kimi, was a Ferrari fan in 06 when he announced his move from McLaren. Then 07 happened and BOTH my fave teams were fighting, along with all of my favorite drivers back then (Alonso, Kimi, Massa, Lewis). And Kimi won!

Unfortunately, it's been painful to see him in Alfa/Sauber. I think he'll have a much more enjoyable life now that he's put his work behind him and gets to retire at 41 :D

Apparently Kimi was tested positive for COVID. Kubica will replace him.

As I am happy for Kubica it's bad news for Kimi. I hope he gets through this illness lightly.

Giovinazzi is really on a mission, I hope it is not too late for him to be pulling through with these excellent George Russell-like qualifying performances.

Good race and pace from Kubica. With no preparation, no feeling with the car etc. matched the result which Kimi would do anyway. And that comment at the end "first time since 2021 I had a car which I can do something" - nice summary for his ugly episode with Williams.

According to Sky F1 he is asymptomatic.

Sadly that means, I assume 10 days isolating, which would rule him out for Monza too 😔

Unless Italy/F1 has different rules regarding length of time to isolate?

He is fast from time time, but even faster in the barriers or making mistakes. He had a lot of time, but he showed too little.
If i would get the money to start my own F1 team, i would revive Arrows
