Wouldn't be great to have someone like him really bringing competitiveness into F1?

Where did he come from?

That was some first race, somewhat reminiscent of Gilles Villeneuve.

Kobayashi:

He is good. Enjoyed his driving style.

I think that what is great, is that both Kobayashi and Jenson proved that you can pass and defend yourself if the need arises.

Problem is that some teams are just playing strategy games, going for the points and passing during the pit stops.

The good thing about Kobayashi's drive yesterday was that he wasn't a star name like (Grosjean) coming into F1. Kobayashi had nothing to lose it was either shine or there would be no seat for next year.

Grosjean a star name.....pure comedysmileysmiley
If Renault have half a brain and he can't get a drive at Toyota, the worst they could do is to let Grosjean down gently and suggest he gets more experience and get this mad as a badger breath of fresh air in, a joy to watch.

Well, it is still only one race, however promising it was.

Raikkonen, he's a top driver but not better than many others in F1 today. And apparently he's got greedy, asking for too high a salary (and this from a fellow Finn).

Am I the only one who wants a Trulli - Sutil partnership next year after what happened last race?

I dont think anyone will drive for Toyota next year as i think they will pull out.

If they are offering contract to Raikkonen now and he signs it, what would happen if they pull out then? Surely Kimi (or whoever their drivers are) would be entitled to some sort of compensation for losing the race seat they thought they had for next season. In general it would be stupid to ask someone to drive for them and after a couple of months tell him that the team is no more.
