Hold your prancing horses :-)
Well, I'm also almost as disappointed as I could be. But I think it's a bit exaggerated to say that Kimi drove like an amateur. Of course 2 mistakes no doubt about it, but it's alway easier to be in the lead like Lewis that to fight your way up the field. Anyway, Heikki set the best lap time (1:27.418) on lap 43 when he soon after (47) pitted. Lewis was close (1:27.452) on lap 39 and pitted on 43. Kimi was almost half a sec behind (1:27.903) but set his time on lap 20 and pitted on 31 and he had a quicker time the for example Nico.
So, even if the result was a shame I don't think that hte future will see a Kimi that can't keep the McLaren pace due to inability to drive without TC. I rather think he's one of the better drivers without it. The two mistakes he made had nothing to do with TC as I see it. It think it had to do with the fact that he want to win and don't play it safe (as safe as he should?) and drove with very small margins in Melbourne.
