"Raikkonen era a única opção para a Lotus" por Tony Dodgins

Raikkonen era a única opção para a Lotus

27/01/2012

Kimi Raikkonen está de volta e anda com uma Renault de dois anos atrás no circuito Ricardo Tormo, em Valência, enquanto eu escrevo.

Durante o inverno, ouvi muita discussão sobre se a decisão da Lotus (ex-Renault) de assinar com ele foi sensata ou não. Acho que é um fato positivo de ele estar andando em um carro não contemporâneo em um circuito que não está no calendário, com pneus que não serão utilizados.

O teste servirá para que ele coloque força nos músculos do pescoço, algo que ele não experimentou nos últimos dois anos. Apesar de qualquer coisa, isso mostra que ele está sério. Eu já disse em uma coluna anterior que não acho que a Lotus, como a equipe é conhecida agora, assumiu um risco, e mantenho isso.

Se você acredita no que foi publicado no jornal italiano “Gazzetta dello Sport”, Jarno Trulli disse que será difícil para Raikkonen se readaptar à F1 e que ele não será rápido no começo.

Trulli pode estar certo, mas ainda a…

Este é Kimi. Sempre foi. Quem nunca viu o que está nesta foto (que sempre esteve, diga-se de passagem) é porque nunca prestou atenção no finlandês como nós. É lógico que quem não gosta do Iceman vai continuar criticando, mas e daí? I don't care! :)#KimiStyle

Vettel signs another Finn to replace trainer

Vettel signs another Finn to replace trainer
By Editor on Saturday, January 28, 2012

Sebastian Vettel has signed up a new trainer.

Last month, it emerged that the reigning back-to-back world champion was parting with Tommi Parmakoski, who is returning to Finland to coach a women’s hockey team.

German Vettel, the Red Bull driver, worked with Parmakoski since 2009.

The Sport Bild magazine said the 24-year-old has replaced him for 2012 with another Finn, 28-year-old Heikki Huovinen.

The German report said Huovinen – recommended to Vettel by Parmakoski – has a masters in sports science and has worked at a well-known Finnish fitness centre.

He has also reportedly been a personal trainer and group instructor, and is a former player in Mestis, Finland’s second highest ice hockey league.

Sport Bild said Huovinen, to be trackside at Jerez early next month, is relocating to Switzerland in order to live close to Vettel.

Kimi Räikkönen: Relaxed driver, relaxed team

Relaxed driver, relaxed team

Ilta-Sanomat 27.1.2012 (paper edition)
by Janne Aittoniemi

According to Kimi Räikkönen it's much more nicer in Lotus than it was in Ferrari and McLaren.

Kimi Räikkönen doesn't miss his boss Ron Dennis from his McLaren-times or Ferrari's boss Luca di Montezemolo.

He is already sure that the working peace between the driver and the team will maintain better in Lotus.

- This is a relaxed team. Much more homey and warmer than Ferrari or McLaren. So far I have had really fun with the crew from Lotus and I don't think that the situation will change, Räikkönen said yesterday.

Lotus is getting a new F1-simulator.

- It's going to be better than any other team has. I myself am not going to drive a lot in the simulator. Even if I would drive in the simulator all days I don't believe it would give any advantage in the final games.

Räikkönen is still trying to get permission from Lotus to drive some rallies this year also.

- One can get injured in normal…

- Of course it's possible that I have to drive behind the lead.

Kimi Räikkönen is a realist. He uses the word "possible", although he knows that the word "likely" would fit in much better.

- It was possible in the same way it was possible with Ferrari in the last year. That car wasn't any terribly good.

Räikkönen won Spa in 2009 with Ferrari's gloomy F60. The value of that performance has never been understood in Finland. The world championship two seasons earlier was a much smaller heroic deed in F1.

Of course Lotus can hit the golden vein and find some loophole like the double diffuser. It's not likely. Räikkönen will have to learn to drive behind others.

But it doesn't matter.

The second WDC is - if possible - an even smaller obsession than the first one was. Räikkönen is not coming back to the track with clenched teeth. He comes back because he loves to race wheel-to-wh…

Mercedes: lançamento tardio pode ajudar novo carro

A Mercedes continua confiante de que tomou a decisão correta ao optar por adiar a estreia de seu novo carro para o segundo teste de pré-temporada da F1, mesmo que seja a única equipe das que andam na frente a adotar essa tática.

A equipe de Brackley anunciou no ano passado que seu modelo de 2012 iria para a pista apenas na segunda bateria de treinos, em Barcelona. Na época, esperava-se que outros times fizessem o mesmo, pois o temo extra de desenvolvimento permitiria pular o primeiro teste.

No entanto, mesmo que as principais rivais continuaram com o planejamento original de correr com seus novos carros no teste de abertura, em Jerez, o vice-presidente de esporte da Mercedes-Benz, Norbert Haug, está otimista quanto ao planejamento de sua equipe.

“Se você tem metade do ano para desenvolver o carro, então, dez dias podem ser cruciais. Essa foi a nossa decisão. Queremos testar o carro finalizado em cada detalhe. É por isso que precisamos de …

Kimi Räikkönen won't ask for permission to drink alcohol

1. Kimi, what's on your mind?

- Nothing. Ask something for God's sake since you have come all the way here.

2. What do you expect from the next tests?

- Difficult to say. We'll see then what the new car is like. I don't think that it's terribly different. I don't know about the tyres. They say that they have changed a bit.

3. What kind of season would you yourself be satisfied with?

- I haven't really thought anything concrete. I see in the tests what the car is like and how good it is. That decides. How it feels, that's a thing you notice right from the first test. At least I have noticed it immediately earlier.

4. You are used to really big teams during your F1-career. Does it show in the operation of Lotus that it's slightly smaller than McLaren and Ferrari?

Martin Whitmarsh about Räikkönen's return

Imagem
Q: Kimi Raikkonen is back in Formula One racing this year with Lotus. From your long experience of him, how do you think he’ll fare?
MW: Kimi is a great guy, with a super talent. He was very successful during his five seasons at McLaren, winning 12 Grands Prix for us and, although he narrowly failed to win a drivers’ world championship during that time, he could easily have become world champion in both 2003 and 2005 if he’d had a bit more luck or a little more reliability. Even as things were, without that extra bit of luck and reliability required to win world championships, he still won 12 Grands Prix for us and some of those wins were truly majestic. During an FIA press conference at a Grand Prix in the latter half of last year - I forget where - I was asked by a journalist whether the team principals of the teams then rumoured to be considering Kimi for a 2012 drive, a couple of whom were sitting alongside me, should hire him or not. My answer was an unequivocal yes. I stand by th…

Räikkönen: There's nothing better than an F1 car

Kimi Raikkonen completed his comeback F1 test this week and has spoken about his feelings at driving an F1 car after two years away.

Raikkonen, the 2007 F1 world champion now aged 32, drove for two days at Valencia’s Riccardo Tormo circuit, which has been used for F1 testing for many years. Testing restrictions meant that he was in a two year old Renault on Pirelli demonstration tyres, but the Finn said it was enough to give him back the old feelings and to show that he’s still got it.

“I was a little concerned about finding the sport had really moved on. But frankly, on Monday and Tuesday I wasn’t surprised. I didn’t feel any difference,” he told L”Equipe today.

“The memories came back, all those times I spent driving various F1 cars, on this track. The old reflexes and feelings came back really fast. Of course it took me a while to find the limit. But after a first day of acclimatisation on Tuesday it went much better, even if there’s…

FERNANDES: “OBJETIVO DA CATERHAM É MARCAR PONTOS EM 2012”

Proprietário da equipe espera que time dispute com times do pelotão intermediário

Tony Fernandes espera que o modelo CT01 finalmente leva a sua equipe à disputa com os times intermediários da F1 e visa à zona de pontuação em 2012.

O proprietário da Caterham (ex-Team Lotus) acredita que o Kers, dispositivo que o time não teve em 2011, pode ser um dos fatores que contribuam para que se chegue ao objetivo de marcar pontos.

“Quero marcar pontos este ano e este é o objetivo. Tem que ser. Perto do final do ano passado, estávamos muito próximos dos carros intermediários, mas a falta do Kers limitou a nossa capacidade.”

“Este ano, no entanto, com as pessoas e instalações que temos na fábrica e o túnel de vento, com o Kers, estou confiante de que vamos virar uma ameação a muitos dos times do pelotão intermediário, e sim, quero conquistar um ponto em algum momento de 2012, talvez dois, se tivermos sorte”, afirmou o empresário malaio.

Kimi Raikkonen primed for Formula One comeback with Lotus

Kimi Raikkonen primed for Formula One comeback with Lotus

By Andrew Benson
Chief F1 writer, BBC Sport website

Kimi Raikkonen says he had no trouble re-adapting to a Formula 1 car in his first test this week after two years away from the sport.

The Finn, world champion for Ferrari in 2007, completed two days of running with his new team Lotus in Valencia.

"I was expecting it to feel faster than it was," said the 32-year-old, who has spent the last two years in rallying.

"OK, Valencia is not the fastest circuit, but it was still pretty normal."

Raikkonen, who was speaking in an exclusive interview with the BBC's new F1 commentator Ben Edwards, said the car did not feel especially fast.

"I was expecting it to feel fast when you really go with the throttle but I had the sensation maybe once," he said.

Nor, he said, did he suffer any neck pains, despite the high G-forces of an F1 car - which can reach 5G during braking and around the fastest corners.

Kimi Räikkönen gave MTV3 an exclusive interview in Switzerland.

Kimi Räikkönen is after the first tests assured of his new employer Lotus-team's atmosphere and action.

- There is a clearly different working atmosphere here than there has been in my earlier teams. Here there are no uptight people, the atmosphere here is much more homey, Kimi Räikkönen said to MTV3.

The man has raced in three teams earlier: Sauber, McLaren and Ferrari.

- There are as many people here as there are in other teams also. Everybody is working for the same matter, everybody is trying to do their best. The next tests tell what the car is like, Räikkönen said.

They have speculated with Kimi Räikkönen's comeback to F1 ever since he left the serie in 2009. Yet part of the audience was astonished when the comeback with Lotus was finally confirmed.

They pondered why a WDC makes a contract with a team that according to preliminary estimations has no chance of fighting for victories.

However the decision to come back was very Räikkö-ish. He is used to making his own decisions without caring what others think. And now Räikkönen felt like going back to F1.

– Now was a good chance to drive in F1 again, he said on Thursday.

– The coolest thing about the comeback is when getting to race against the others.

Räikkönen assures that his motivation is top class.

– I have never had any problems with motivation. Still many seem to color that matter.

It has been speculated that the Lotus-seat would only be a temporary seat for Räikkönen on his way up to the top teams. Räikkönen doesn't admit…

In rally Kimi Räikkönen went to ditches but also flashed his speed.

He didn't achieve the sharpest top which wasn't any big surprise. Mikko Hirvonen for example stated when Räikkönen's rally-career began that Kimi can't get in the topspeed just by snapping fingers, because he lacked the required experience of the roads and driving to notes.

People took Räikkönen's adventure in WRC a little bit too seriously. Of course Räikkönen drove at times with a goal, however rally became a hobby for him. Still a part of those following Räikkönen also expected podium positions from him in rally too.

– I never wanted to try rally as anything else than just a hobby. I didn't have much expectations. At times I drove in the forest and the ditch but I'm still satisfied with my achievements in rally.

– I paid myself for my hobby. Hence I could decide myself if I would go to some rally or not. I didn't want to take it too …

Kimi Räikkönen doesn't make his F1-comeback with the tail between his legs. The man who is known as a silent hero told on Thursday in Zürich that he returns to F1 only to win his career's second WDC.

– Of course the championship is my goal. You always go after it but another WDC is not any obsession for me, Räikkönen said.

They have predicted Räikkönen a difficult season in Lotus-team after his rallying adventures, but the Iceman refuses to take the role of someone who is cooling off.

Räikkönen has often stated that as a racing driver he was only interested in the victories. That thought is still strong although Lotus isn't one of the top teams based upon preliminary estimations.

– I don't drive just because it's cool to drive. It's abnormal if you aren't reaching for victory.

Promotor do GP da Espanha rejeita rumores e garante F1 em Barcelona

As notícias sobre a crise econômica na zona do Euro, sobretudo na Espanha, deram origem a especulações a respeito dos dois GPs de F1 realizados no país: em Barcelona e Valência, este, sob a alcunha de GP da Europa. Visando manter a categoria em solo ibérico, Bernie Ecclestone já acenou com a possibilidade de um revezamento entre as duas cidades, nos mesmos moldes do que já acontece entre Hockenheim e Nürburgring, na Alemanha.

Entretanto, o promotor do GP da Espanha, Salvador Servià, negou que a crise coloca em xeque a realização da corrida em Barcelona. “Só um desastre, digo, um terremoto, é um problema. Esqueça todos os rumores e as manchetes, ainda estamos trabalhando tanto quanto antes”, declarou o dirigente em entrevista à rádio catalã ‘Vuelta Rapida’.

As a new user of Pirelli F1-tyres is Kimi Räikkönen who returns to the tracks. This way the Italian brand has as the first one in F1-history six world champions at the same time.

Pirelli got praisal for last season's colorful races in F1. Now the expectations are even higher.

Turun Sanomat was offered an opportunity to interview Pirelli Motorsport's manager Paul Hembery.

Six WDCs in the serie, is F1 now having their highest level of all times?

– I think so - considering that there is also a bunch of talented drivers who haven't won the championship. The level is very tough, maybe the toughest one we have ever seen. If the cars' level is also as tough and their performance ability touches the sky, then we can expect a number of amazingly great races, Hembery thinks.

Räikkönen had time to drive during WRC-season 2010 with Pirelli's tyres. How well does Hembery know Kimi?
