Which means that Kimi Raikkonnen is out at Ferrari.
Of this, we shall speak no more, unless it is to heap derogatory comments upon it.
Speaking of Felipe Massa, however, he got back behind the wheel for the first time since his horrible accident in Hungary. Sure, it was in a Kart, but it's still the first step in getting back to F1 trim. He turned more than 60 laps on the kart track at his home circuit of Interlagos on Tuesday.
He did manage to beat Baby Yoshi and Diddy Kong, but lost to Mario.

I wonder if Kimi will be able to find another ride? With several new teams joining next year, they're gonna be hungry for experienced talent. And though Kimi hasn't been a champion, he's done well overall. He is far from the worst driver available, and definitely not the worst one who is at liberty.
I won't be at all surprised if he has a new home for next season. But it won't be in as good of a car as Ferrari would have provided him.
It would be ironic if it was Renault, wouldn't it? With both of their experienced drivers now gone, they're going to be looking hard.

Heikki's gone, no question about it, whether or not Kimi comes in.

Last weekend the Legendary Announce Team mentioned that Kimi still has $40 million left on his contract. Hope he got a good buy-out.
I'm loving this year's Silly Season. :-)

Too bad Minx filters out ⁠.
