  1. Not about testing, but while its quiet……..
    Simon Rennie has left Kimi and Renault to go to RBR, seemingly a swap with Ciaron Pilbeam going the other way. Much has been written about what I thought were Kimis hilarious comments at Abu Dhabi last season, and certainly the sort of coment I would expect from any driver who has a solid relationship with their engineer and would not be taken out of context as disrespectful or hurtfull to the engineer.
    In fact I assumed that these relationships were at their best when the driver and engineer were very “tight”, eg Massa and Smedley. However this doesnt seem to hold water, because I can only think of one situation where driver and engineer have moved team together which is what you would expect if they were a very close and effective unit; namely Jock Clear and JV moving from Williams to BAR.
    So this leads to two questions:-
    1 is the relationship with the driver simply a very small but highly visible part of the race engineers job?
    2 would it be better if drivers and race engineers stuck together like a rally driver and navigator / golfer and caddy; moving through their career together when a good relationship is found?

  2. Is it just me or have Kimi and Romain kinda combined their two helmets from last to make this year’s ones look almost the same from a distance….?

    1. They’re a bit more alike but Grosjean’s has more white than Raikkonen’s. Pictures of both here:
