F1 season 2012

Post by tecnorge3 »

The 2011 season is over, so let's start a new topic. :wink:

As many of you know, Kimi Räikkönen comes back and drives for Lotus Renault GP. :)

Its good for us, because I prefer to watch "the old dogs" on the tracks, instead of the "new baby dogs". :lol:

The driver market shenanigans this fall are impressive. Though the top four teams from this year appear locked in, half the grid might change at least one driver for next year, we have at least two teams confirmed now that are replacing both drivers.

I wouldn't have expected it to happen on this scale.

Me too.

I'm an old Raikkonen fan. This is really cool. Now we only have to wait for the first tests to see how good the Lotus will be....

What's also interesting, though, is that we've had a number of these announcements even before Christmas now. Compared to seasons where midfield-backmarker teams would take until February or March of the following year to confirm who was actually driving for them, after X, Y and Z had tested the new car, it's a much quicker process, as well.

What I also find very significant is that I've read more blog pieces than traditional racing press articles about the (possible) backgrounds and reasons for these decisions.

Expect them in the same 2011 positions. I´m a fun of Kimi too, but he´ll strugle in 2012 with the new car and for the many years out of F1.

These showcars where parts are from differently old cars are an entire nerd discipline by themselves. :)
