Round 3 to Vettel. Kimi had car issues again, saying he needed a restart for the ERU or something for most of the race.

It would be nice to see both Ferrari drivers on the podium. Kimi just doesn't seem to have the magic of the old days at the moment.

Ferrari have forgotten they have a second car. I'm not concerned. It's only 3 races in.

Kimi's not happy with car currently, so he's cruising round collecting points

And going for fastest laps at the end of a Grand Prix! He regularly attempts this, it seem. Even though he appears quite lacklustre for the most of the time,

Does Kimi have the record for number of fastest race laps ever in F1?

Kimi is second in the all time list of fastest laps with 44 against Schumi's mighty 77. He still has some way to go to be able to catch that record.

Um no...

I still do not get the reason for Ferrari keeping him. He is not the driver he was. It must be just having a name driver as no.2 and not ruffle Seb.

You're not alone there. I think the only reason KR is still there is because Ferrari was unable to get any of the drivers they really wanted for 2017. Of which, I believe a top contender for the Ferrari seat was Sergio. And Sergio's contract with FI ends this year. Hmmm...

Ferrari should dump Raikkonen with immediate effect and put Romain Grosjean in the car.OK, he suffered from bouts of brain fade in his early years but he's matured immensely since then.

Most importantly, he's always been seriously quick, and is potentially at his prime right now. The guy is underrated and deserves his chance with a top flight team. I'm convinced he has the speed, and the desire, to rival Vettel.

I am sure that RoGro would love to challenge Vettel.
The point of Kimi is that he is still quick, apparently has stellar feed back to the engineers, a similar style to Vettel, and actually gets on with and supports Vettel. So by all accounts he is a pretty damn good fit at Ferrari.

He hasn't matched Seb in equal machinery this year, but Lewis and Bottas have not matched him with better machinery either. .......

I realise I said this last year, but this is surely Räikkönen's last year in F1 (or at least his last year at Ferrari). There are several better options available for 2018.
