Actually I think its a great idea to create this thread in the FORUM @prisoner-monkeys, certainly the Forum is just the place to discuss why one would or wouldn’t like a certain driver, team, sport etc.
I did mind giving a 1/10 for a race review for the simple reason that Kimi won it, as it seems for be to be a nonsensical way of rating a race just for who got first and ignore that others did some very nice driving in that race too. And even worse it if becomes the focus of discussion in the comments about the race. But on the forum, why not?
Everyone who does feel they have arguments to add to either view, or think there’s no point to having a view, or whatever, that is just great, as it adds to the community that makes this part of F1Fanatic a living social thing.
As for Raikkonen him being a positive for the sport or not. Well, I am not too big a fan of Lotus (or rather Enstone called Lotus) milking the “leave me alone” thing, or the Iceman thing, or those annoying hashtags. But its not much worse than Ferrari keeping up the talk about fighting back from an enormous way back with “gladiator” Alonso, or Red Bull when they keep saying they are not one of the biggest teams out there. That said, all of these things are just distractions of what happens on track and to criticize a driver for what his fans do or not do and say, hm.
With the racing Raikkonen has shown us since his return, I think it would be absurd not to see that as a positive. Just as Sutil showed us something positive in his first race back, and Bianchi showed why it can pay off to take on a talented driver instead of a wallet bearing driver, all of that make it more interesting to watch and that can only be good, can’t it?
