Kimi Needs His A$$ Kicked

What an immature kid. If this was an isolated incident, I would give him a break but it's not. He's thrown these little fits before. He either needs for someone to sit him down, like R.D., for a one-way conversation or a fine (not like it would hurt him financially) but it would make a statement.

This is Formula One, not some WKA event for kids 10 and under.

Kimi the "Ice Man?" Give me a break!

4za,

D

Yep, racing drivers are not gods. They should know common decency and manners and behave decently to the Marshalls that are there to protect their lives. Ungrateful bagger!! Iceman, my foot.

During the race, a large part of his rearwing came off, so he spun into the gravel in front of all those red T-shirts :lol: Anyway, when he got out of the car he made some movements to the marshalls to get lost. Nothing special really in my opinion, and many other F1 drivers would do the same thing as well. One point: if Michael should do this, the next day the press will shout about it, if someone else does it, who cares? Can´t stand that...

offcourse he is pissed, and making some movements to the marshalls, djee, unless he was giving them the finger it isn't that much. If he directed his anger to a marshal by cursing or the finger or direct contact, that is wa whole different story. That guy is full of adrenaline, and you expect him to be calm? Come on

Dr Bob,

This wasn't an isolated incident with Kimi. He's literally shoved marshalls and that is unacceptable for such a professional. I have no problem with him throwing a steering wheel. Heck, he can kick the car for all I care. He goes over the line when he is flagrantly disrespectful to race officials.

Again, this is NOT an isolated incident and has become a pattern of behavior with this kid. How many Minardi drivers fly off the handle at a marshall when their cars fail?

Marshalls are there to assist and do not deserve Kimi's type of behavior.

My two cents.

So I guess he is to F1 what John McEnroe was to tennis?

Pete,

I would agree with that except that McEnroe never laid a hand on an official.

Please don't get me wrong here, folks. I'd be hot as well if my rear wing flew off at 180mph. Still, I hope my composure would enable me to still treat those assisting me with respect.

If Kimi wants to vent and shove, I have the perfect candidate: Ron Dennis. Now he's the Ice Man...How long do you think blond boy would be with McLaren?!? 8)

Forza,

Dane
