No doubt, he's fast, but he can't overtake the top racers like Schumacher or Senna

there was a ranking done by an F1 magazine some time back and Senna was rated fastest followed by M Schu.

think depends on how one defines "fast" ... but am skeptical that Kimi is faster than M Schu and Senna.

Not a fair comparison to Senna cos F1 technology changes drastically. The current batch of drivers are lucky to hv so much driver's aid like Traction Control / Suspension Setting on board etc.

Its like me driving a 1980s car to your 2000s car. I will lose you half way through the first corner already. So such comparison is too hard to sustain.

first, u need to understand fastest <> champion...

champion needs combination of many factors, car reliability, fast, tyre, fighting spirit, technical knowledge, luck...... n most important - faster car!

schumi is the champion bcos he owns abt all the factors.... bt kimi only has one which is fast (of cos with a competitive car)....

P/S: we are talking who is the fastest driver....

They also changed the tire rulebook to disadvantage him as well as the Ferrari/Bridgestone team, all for the sake of entertainment.

Using Monza as the benchmark and racing techniques, I would say Montoya is the fastest driver during his peak performance in the Williams.

Hmm... like the rest of the guys said, really depending on how do you define FAST. Michael may not be fastest all the time because he is good in technical knowledge, good in finding balance between driving to the edge engine and at the same time, preserve the engine. There were comments on Kimi in McLaren team, he always pushed to the car to the limit without taking care of the engine, thus, you saw he blew his Merc so many times. Even when he jumped over to Ferrari, I still remember what Merc Chief Engineer had to comment: Ferrari needs to build a tank for Kimi.

Its known that Kimi drive the wheels off a F1 car. There is hardly any F1 car that could really withstand his kinda torture.

Like I've indicated in my posting earlier, its in fact a good thing for Ferrari. (Since he joined them)

His aggressiveness will definitely force them to design and build a better and much more reliable car. Its going to be interesting.

He has an interesting way of driving if you notice. Usually, if you see, beginning, he will be really harsh and aggressive.. mid-race.. he sort of "sleep"... driving around casually.

Then all of a sudden, he made extremely fast laps. So fast even sometimes I find it really amazing. Like, when someone in front of him pits. He will then lay 2-3 extraordinarily quick laps to "catch up" before he pits too. Usually this is the killing one for the one in front.

The strange thing is... he did it BEFORE he needs to pit. That means his tyres wear..etc.

I gotta give it to him.. then suddenly, I see Alonso doing the same.. hahaha

Also, for 2007, Lewis is doing well coz he do a lot of kurbings. He is very very aggressive on curbs. But strangely, even Kimi dun do as much, he is comparatively quicker sometimes to that of Lewis in the course of the whole race.
