I know this thread hasn’t had any activity for over a year, but I just wanted to post this video of the game, which shows just how far the project has come. The fact that it’s a video of Suzuka is fitting for this weekend also.
PM, i understand where you’re coming from but i don’t agree entirely:
I don’t appreciate Kimi’s attitude myself and cannot understand why users around here find it so ‘cool’ and ‘entertaining’ whenever he acts in a rude and arrogant way either to a reporter or a race engineer.
I don’t know how many fans around here have met him in person, but i’m pretty sure that if anyone from here were in the race engineer’s shoes, or were waiting to get an autograph for hours and saw him simply ignore them, they wouldn’t find him as ‘cool’ as on TV.
However, i must say that i do enjoy watching him race, his race-craft and duels with other drivers are almost always on the edge and fair – an ability that few drivers on the current grid posses.
Having said, i would never really support a claim such as ‘the sport would probably be better off without him’ – because that’s simply not true.
The sport after all, is not about driver’s personalities and he’s an example for every rookie out there for instance on how to be consistent in finishes, fast and fair in duels.
I like him as a driver and i dislike him as a person, but i think those 2 views can co-exist.
