Kimi is really not that good at Mclaren. Not suited for Mclaren atleast. Makes more mistakes than anyone on the grid. Dun like him one bit.

I think it's better to avoid stating personal opinions as facts.

Kimi makes mistakes.? I think he drove best for McLaren see the year 2003/2005 he only lost due to the unreliable Mclaren but now due to the FIA Rule changes from 2007 the cars have become more Reliable.

Kimi and McLaren has the worst luck when they worked together last time.

If Ferrari thinks Kimi is not good enough, then why would McLaren want him.

Personally I'd like to see him in an underdog team like Toyota or Williams.

Luck changes with time.

Because he is, at the end of the day, a very quick driver? Ferrari had to choose between Alonso and Kimi. For McLaren, its Kovalainen versus Kimi. Although I think Kimi is better than both the others, I'm sure no one will dispute that he's better than Kovalainen.

He was in Sauber at the beginning. He did well enough to impress McLaren back then.

If Kimi indeed comes at McLaren, I would love him to thrash Lewis and then watch the fireworks from them . Kimi wouldnt care much anyway.

If Kimi teams up with Lewis in Mclaren then F1 racing would be totally different. Both drivers aggressive and fighting for who is faster and quicker.
Hoping Kimi stays in F1 and moves to either Mclaren or Brawn

Default It's official - Alonso moves to Ferrari

The news is now official guys.

Alonso to replace Kimi in 2010 - The Official Formula 1 Website

Kimi sad to leave Ferrari - The Official Formula 1 Website

I really feel for Kimi. I am hoping he gets a seat for 2010.

As for Alonso, I still dislike the man but respect his talent.

Kimi is talking as if he is still not sure of a drive next year. Doesn't look too good

If he moves to Mcl, he'll make a good distraction for Lewis.
So effectively, he'd still be employed by Ferrari

Kimi can choose to do nothing next year and still get paid 40m per his contract.

I'd love to see him take a Toyota and put it on the podium every race. Even with mediocre drivers, they are able to get a podium every now and them. Sauber back in the day was good but not capable of winning.

Hey if nobody wants Kimi, I'm sure Mallya will give him a job.

Raikkonen may opt out of Formula One - Planet-F1 News - from planet-f1.com

He'll only drive for a top team. Either that, or he's off to rally.

Kimi has stated that either he races in a competitive car next year or leaves next year .
So Force India fans , dont get your hopes high !
Kimi in Toyota ? That would be interesting ! He might just change their fortunes and in turn get another fortune.
