how sure are you of the news that he will lose 5 places at the end of the season? or are you just talking about the experts who rate them here?

only talking about the experts. If it was just me, I wouldn't dock him anything else. He was punished by the stewards and thats enough. docking him 5 places in the end is not quite just fair.

According to me, Webber and Fisichella should have been ahead of Button. And Coulthard a couple of places higher.
But in the end, Kimi rules!!!

think the top drivers dont really bother about who rates them where. all that matters for them is where they finish. maybe to a rookie an expert opinion of him might make some changes but i dont think it makes a difference for the top drivers. just my two cents
