Finding this also reminded me that I have not been consistently giving much love to Kimi Raikkonen. Yeah, a lot of this is probably linked to Felipe Massa's polarizing cuteness (and genuine skill behind the wheel!) easily eclipsing the Can't-Be-Bothered Raikkonen of 2008 in my mind. There were more than a few times last season that I would gladly have punched Kimi Raikkonen several times in the gut, had I been within swinging distance. Nonetheless, this revelation has left me much chagrined. At this point in time, I want nothing more than for Kimi to go out in Australia and trounce everyone (except for Felipe Massa, who I love dearly, and Sébastien Bourdais, because he seems a bit vulnerable at present). Essentially, I want him to do well so everyone stops saying he's shit, because frankly he's not. I had this conversation with my roommate the other day in which I voiced these outrages and concerns over Raikkonen's 2009 form. His reply follows.
It's like, 'Oh, Shitty Raikkonen's coming around again! Oh, here he comes. What a Slowbro!'
LOL all you like, but Kimi Raikkonen is just not that kind of Pokémon!
Also, it's smiling a bit too much.
