Why signing Raikkonen is not a risk
Since the emergence of the paddock Kimi return to F1 next year, rumors, Tony - If Dawkins' analysis is Williams attracted a Kimi, the very small risks
Singapore yards the first two days of news and gossip are the K prefix - Kerbs, curfews and Kimi.
For shoulders you will not have much interest in that thing. Well, they delayed the practice game, it seems this will be trouble, but you know they can be resolved.
Why did they move the shoulder this year, Ah? Previously did not? It seems that some bolts on the fixed point is second-hand goods, while the local workers installed CDTH, hammer and knock the heavy.

</td></tr></tbody></table> Singapore's strategy is to maintain Europe's biological clock. Has to go to sleep until the morning of 5-6 points, remember to switch to "disturb" the little sign, or your aunt will destroy illusion, around 13
0 or so to get up, bathe, go to the track.
For some, the race team, now have to comply with a curfew. F1 Sporting Regulations, "said team member supporting the operation of the car is not allowed in a '6 hours' length of time to enter into a paddock, this curfew start time is about nine hours before the start of practice sessions."
This rule is due to resource constraints F1 stipulated in the agreement, teams can only travel with the team of 47 staff. Taking into account the intensity of F1, it is easy to game the team will be required to work overnight - but no one really wanted to let those guys in the car ready to race when operating as zombies.
So, in a "normal" race weekend, you will hang a sign in the yard door, said Friday 7
0, Saturday 8
0 is not open.
In general, the guests always do the team's mini bus to reach the track. In Singapore, as many hotel is a few steps away from the track the distance, so the VIP have some more freedom.
The first calculation is wrong STR team curfew Chairman Franz - Twister, he arrived early in the paddock on Friday, breaking the curfew. This season you are allowed to break curfew four times, for example, to repair the car practice session crash, if anyone breaking the curfew, FIA will notify everyone.
Saturday morning we met early in the PR
Virgin sister, he did not came to my head.
We came up quips, "go shopping?"
But she seemed very nervous, she had just been expelled from the paddock. Soon the FIA was a notice, Virgin and Mercedes has broken the curfew, because the PR
/ marketing staff before being allowed into the track.
When we arrived, when among the media, one of my colleagues admitted that he helped shy sister, a.
"Guys ..." he said, "I saw her go in, they put a lot of railings at the entrance, she turned in the past, I put the package to help her and I told her that the market does not matter who."
Half of the paddock who are thinking of.
"This is crazy. Virgin's sister, how can PR
operations related to the car?"
Another friend quipped, "do not know, but she may be the operation of the car, I bet she was under pressure to find more than Nick Wirth also!"

</td></tr></tbody></table> When the incident, the poor sister, very sad. So ruined her day. Ross - Brown dissatisfied, immediately asked to clarify the rules. Good advice of the FIA eventually withdrew the record. But Franz Tost violations were recorded.
Well, pull a long time, finally able to talk about Kimi had. He had Williams certainly missing, rumors run faster than anything. He could return to the paddock in 2012, serving the world champion will increase to 6?
Should I press, I will return to F1 pressure Kimi. I can not imagine him to the Grove base to flee for his bicycle version of the KERS system procurement customers.
F1 Kimi obviously did not leave the line of sight. Ferrari ahead of the end of his contract a year in exchange for Fernando - Alonso. Many F1 insiders believe that Alonso is the world's best riders, of course, an upgraded version of 2011's Sebastian Vettel will make them reconsider this assertion.
I have a Ferrari in Singapore and the staff of chat that he was world champion in 2007 the rate of talent no doubt. Alonso, Kimi can not do like that has to support the team, leading it, encourage it.
Ferrari - Michael Schumacher cooperation for a long time, but they still show in 2007 for Kimi's speed, and its technology systems for the ability to understand the Ferrari is satisfied. Kimi did not have the energy and seems to play.
But, he said, the real Kimi was not the popular image of the public mind. Also known as Ice Man, free from any emotional distress, and isolation from outside influence what, exactly is nonsense.
Looking back, he said, in fact, Massa Kimi for Ferrari in 2008 to become the preferred driver feel uncomfortable. Although he does not require a bias, but do not like to feel the support team.
For example, they said, Kimi, disappointed in early 2009, but Massa after the crash, immediately playing the spirit.
He once again became the focus of the core team. Kimi drove a half of the season Luca - Badoer and Fisi to Q2 the car no law has been continuously on the podium.

</td></tr></tbody></table> Maldonado undoubtedly will take up a race seat next year. Team President - Adam Parr certainly think the money thing, but Sam was about to leave - the idea is to Venezuelans Michael said a few good words.
Including Singapore's race this year, Rubens in qualifying only to 8-6 lead. Michael said: "I am pleased to Pastor and he entered as GP2 champion F1, the year he was very close with Rubens."
"I think Pastor in his second season can be a lot better, he would know all of the track and his first four games are tough, but the rookie is true, he deserves to get a position in F1, which is no doubt. "
Retained Barrichello, you know what level he is. Sam and I catch it in time, Sam has been living in Williams' last hours, he did not want to be involved in Kimi's rumors, but he gives some sound advice, "My personal opinion is that Williams's views are not very happy to see Kimi back to F1, because he is a good man, a world champion, obviously is a very fast driver. "
Some people still do not for Kimi's personality like, but the paddock is difficult to find a person that choose Kimi, what adventure Williams - assuming Kimi willing to reduce some of his king-class offer.
Another happy about that Jackie - Stewart, Sir.
"It's true that Kimi's only been used to McLaren and Ferrari," JYS said in Singapore, "but I think it's worth a shot. He's one hell of a driver and I think he'd be good."
"Indeed Kimi Mclaren and Ferrari were once only the wealthy to pursue this, but I think Williams should try to one. He's one hell of a driver and I think he'd be good"
